MADISON, Ala. (WHNT)- Madison County Sheriff’s Office has launched a homicide investigation to try and figure out how 57-year-old Jason Klonowski died. Klonowski’s body was found by a neighbor on Sunday. Deputies believe that he had been dead for more than 24-hours.

Klonowski’s neighbor remembered him as a passionate person, not afraid to fight for what he believed in. Denise Brown was also his housekeeper for five years. She told WHNT News 19 that she discovered him at his property on Mussleman Lane Road this weekend. “Yes, I was the one who found him.” said Brown. “He was down near his barn.”

Brown described him as a passionate person. “He was just a quiet peaceful man, loves nature, he loves the outdoors, and he’s just a good all around person,” said Brown. “He’d give his shirt off his back to somebody.”

Brown said she will continue to look after the animals that Klonowski left behind. “He’s just one of those people you can’t forget,” said Brown. “He just touched my life in a different way than most people.”

Brown said she hopes that justice is served soon and she wants answers fast.

“We have got to find who did this and find them quick,” Brown added.
