BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – Authorities say a woman was found dead in her apartment in Jefferson County in a case that’s being investigated as a homicide.

Al.com reports that the woman’s body was found Sunday afternoon in the eastern part of the county.

Jefferson County sheriff’s Sgt. Joni Money said a neighbor had checked on the woman because she had not been seen for several days.

The neighbor saw her on the floor inside the apartment and called law officers. Money said that evidence at the scene suggested foul play, though an autopsy was being done to determine how she died.

The woman was 31. Her identity wasn’t immediately released.
