COLBERT COUNTY, Ala. – Muscle Shoals police are actively investigating the death of Jason Lee Fox, 40, after he was found with gunshot wounds in his home on Grand Avenue. The investigation is being treated as a homicide.

Police say it is too early in the investigation to pursue the idea of a suspect at large.

Investigators say they were called to the home around noon Friday after a woman found her husband with what police are describing as a “traumatic wound.” The woman had just returned to the home for lunch, and her 911 call was treated as a full arrest. When the medics arrived, they realized his condition was much more serious. Police say Fox’s body was found just inside the back door of the home.

Fox’s body has been taken to state forensics for an autopsy.
