what a gross thing to come home to.
A Texas woman was found dead in her tanning bed face down Sunday morning after possibly laying there for more than a day.
The body of Rhonda Waits, 46, was discovered by her boyfriend in their shared Samsom Park home after returning from a three-day vacation.
The tanning bed, which operated on a timer, was found off when police responded to her boyfriend's call for help.
'Just couldn't believe it because, as far as we know, there nothing was wrong with her,' Ms Waits' neighbour of 15 years Craig Thommason told CBS 11.
'[She was] real friendly. Every time I saw her out, she always talked to me,' Mr Thommason said.
Police say a radio had been left on in the house and medications were found nearby but there were no signs of forced entry to the home or foul play.
The medical examiner has yet to make a final ruling on Ms Waits' cause of death though they have eliminated one possible cause:
'I've spoken to the medical examiners officer. There is no sign that her death was linked to the tanning bed,' Samson Park Police Chief Randy Driver told CBS.
Ms Waits' daughter has told CBS that there were no indications of her mother having health problems.
Police are waiting toxicology reports to determine her cause of death.
