ABBEVILLE: Abbeville Police and Henry County Coroner's Office are investigating a death on Franklin Street in Abbeville.
The house has crime scene tape around the house.
The death is considered "suspicious circumstances". The death is probably a natural death. However based on the "suspicious circumstances" it requires law enforcement and the Coroner to work the case as a crime scene.
You can only be on a scene one time. You can never re-create a scene. So when there are questions to be answered, the authorities must work the scene as worst case scenario until they find otherwise.
In consultation with Abbeville Police, Henry County Coroner Derek Wright, and 20th Judicial Circuit Pat Jones the body has been referred to Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences for a autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.
AGAIN, it will probably be a natural death. But you can never re-create the scene and evidence. So it is worked as a homicide until they find otherwise.
