Texas authorities are investigating the circumstances behind the dead body of a woman found in the pool of the Texas home of “El Charro of Huentitan” Vicente Fernandez earlier this week.

The home located in San Antonio, Texas is owned and maintained by the iconic singer but not occupied by him or his family.  On Labor Day the body of a woman in her underwear, who according to reports appears to be in her 40s, was found floating in the backyard pool.

The maintenance man found the body and notified officials.  Some reports indicate the home has been vacant for 10 years but properly maintained.  The singer’s family has indicated they believe the woman was a local homeless person who sneaked onto the property. 

Fernandez, 73, was recently hospitalized for a pulmonary thrombosis and battled with liver cancer last year.  Due to his ongoing health issues Fernandez has been unable to finish his farewell tour that he started in early 2012. 

The San Antonio medical examiner’s office is working to identify the woman and determine the cause of death.
