ALBERTVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Albertville police were called to the scene of a homicide investigation Thursday afternoon.

Investigators were called to a home on Valley View Drive shortly after noon. A person went to the home to check on someone and called police when nobody came to the door.

Police found one man dead inside the home.  A man called to secure the home, as his daughter lives at the residence, but a friend was taking care of it while she was in California.

A family member of the homeowner told investigators the person found inside did not live at the home. One woman said the victim was a nice person who moved here to better himself.

Police are calling this a homicide investigation and are currently working to get a positive identification on the body as well as a cause of death.
