HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – WHNT News 19 continues to try to track down new details on the discovery of a woman’s body in south Huntsville earlier this week.

We’ve asked each day this week for any details about what happened on Thornmor Drive.  Police Chief Lewis Morris has declined all requests.

A department spokesman told us Monday officers found a woman dead and man unconscious inside the home.  The man is in Huntsville Hospital, and investigators are not releasing his name.

We do know the victim is Colleen Penton.  Her grandmother tells us the 34-year-old was married and had two children.

Penton also leaves behind her parents, a brother and sister.
