Posted: Updated:
JEFFERSON COUNTY - AL -

Jefferson County sheriff deputies are taking part in a death investigation.  Deputies responded to the 1600 block of 7th Street NW on a report of a body found under the crawl space of a house.  A plumber was going under the house to repair broken pipes and found a person sitting in a chair with no sign of life.

Deputies say the person found dead is the ex-husband of the resident.  He no longer lived at the house and has not been seen for several days.  He has family living in the area but was not currently living with them.  The resident reported she was unaware of why he would be under the house. 

The cause of death has not yet been determined.  No foul play is suspected.  It is possible that the death was the result of exposure to outdoor elements.  The identity is being held pending notification of family members.
