Sheriff: Murder investigation underway in Seale, Ala.

Posted: Updated:
SEALE, AL (WTVM) -

There are new details about the victim of a homicide in Russell County whose body was discovered Tuesday.

The young man who was found dead in his trailer on Avalon Circle in Seale is a student at Chattahoochee Valley Community College. He is originally from out of state and has only been in town for about a year according to neighbors.

At this time officials have not released many details about the crime and Sheriff Heath Taylor is withholding the victim's name from the media until the man's parents can be reached to notify them first.

One of the victim's classmates said he didn't hear from the man in four days and he considered that out of the ordinary.  He tried him on the phone and on the internet with no answer, then he tried him at his house. 

The victim's landlord opened up the door and the victim's body was in plain sight.  Sheriff Heath Taylor says it was an obvious homicide, though he is not confirming the method of attack.
