BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Police say the death of a man found decomposing inside his Alabama home has been deemed a homicide.

Birmingham police Lt. Pete Williston tells AL.com that the body was discovered on the floor of the home Friday by family who hadn’t heard from the man in several days.

Williston says the Jefferson County Coroner’s Office ruled the death a homicide. The victim’s remains haven’t been positively confirmed, so his name has not been released.

Further details have not been released.
