Investigators say the homeowner, 64-year-old Joseph McGuire called 911 around 2 a.m. Wednesday. The Gainesville Sun reports deputies arrived within three minutes and found Monroe and rendered first aid until paramedics arrived and took her to the hospital.
McGuire is cooperating with authorities. So far, no charges have been filed, but the investigation is continuing.
