APD continue to investigate scene where dead body was found

APD interview people on scene where a dead body was found Sunday morning.

APD officers and the special crimes unit continue to investigate the scene at the Economy Inn Motel where a female body was found at 11 a.m.

Lt. Erick Bohannon said police are treating the case as a homicide, though a preliminary investigation leads officers to believe that may not be the cause of death.

"We're still working it as if it were a homicide," Bohannon said. "We still have some people we have to talk to and some folks we have to track down."

At this time police are not releasing the age or identity of the victim. Bohannon said police believe the victim may have not been alone, but would not confirm if drugs or alcohol were related to the case.

According to police, an autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
