Lieutenant Michael Johnson with Huntsville Police said they found the body inside of the apartment.

"The apartment was vacant," Johnson said. "At the time it is not being leased."

He said the police contacted the 911 caller and collected more evidence. Johnson said they can't yet release details surrounding the matter of death, but says the public should not be concerned.

"Because the person of interest we have in mind most likely knew this individual that we found inside the apartment," Johnson said. The Madison County Deputy Coroner is calling this a homicide investigation.

Police say they cannot release information on the victim's identity at this time as family members have not been located yet.
