Homewood police investigating homicide on Grove Street

HOMEWOOD, Ala. (WIAT) — Homewood police were called to the home to investigate reports of a dead body inside a home just after 9 a.m. Wednesday morning.

No one answered the door when police arrived, so they forced their way into the home through the back door. Once they made entry, they found the victim inside the home.

Neighbors tell WIAT 42 News the only crimes they’re used to in the neighborhood are car burglaries, and those don’t happen often.

“Something like this, it’s alarming,” said neighbor Jonathan Burson. “I mean, definitely alarming, but if this happened on a regular basis, a couple times a month or something more frequent.”

Investigators are not giving out many details at this point, all they will say is that they found evidence indicating foul play.

Investigators are questioning a person of interest at the Homewood Police Station, but no arrests have been made at this time.
