ABBEVILLE: Members of Abbeville Police Department, Henry County Sheriff Department, Abbeville - Henry County Crime Scene Unit, Henry County Coroner Derek Wright and Dothan Police Crime Scene Investigator Jon Thomas are on the scene of a death on West Washington Street in Abbeville.
The scene, West Washington Street, is the same as Highway 10.
There is an elderly female that is deceased. There are questionable circumstances involved. That is why this death is being investigated as a complete crime scene. You are only on the scene one time. Therefore investigators have to work cases as the worst case backwards to make sure that all evidence is documented and all evidence collected.
At this time the death is questionable and not ruled as a murder.
As more information is found out we will update.
NOTE: Even though this death is in Henry County, someone please call Dale County Commission Chairman Mark Blakenship. He needs to know what the Abbeville - Henry County law enforcement is investigating.
UPDATED @ 4:32 PM
Law Enforcement Officials and Coroner Derek Wright has called the Montgomery Department of Forensic Sciences to the scene to assist with the investigation. At this time investigators are still on the scene waiting for crime scene specialists from Montgomery to arrive on the scene.
Henry County Coroner Derek Wright was called from this scene to a second death scene. The second scene there are no reports of foul play. When Coroner Wright completes the second death scene he will return to the frist death scene.
THe first scene on West Washington Street authorities do not feel there is foul play. However there is questionable circumstances the scene presents. When investigating anything, you are only on the scene one time. With that in mind, a scene has to be worked as the worst case until investigators are sure, without a doubt, there is no foul play. That is what Abbeville - Henry County Law Enforcement and Coroner Derek Wright is doing on the first death scene.
