LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – Limestone County Deputies are investigating a possible homicide on Copeland Road in Toney, Alabama. Authorities said they found a body at the location.

Deputies were called to the property after a woman said she received a voicemail from a family member asking for help.
