The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office is conducting a death investigation that occurred early Tuesday morning at a residence on Oriole Circle in Barefoot Bay.
Deputy Tod Goodyear told Sebastian Daily that law enforcement responded at approximately 1:00 a.m. this morning in reference to a person found deceased in the home.
However, the initial investigation led agents to believe that the circumstances surrounding the death were suspicious in nature.
Agents from the Homicide and Crime Scene Units are currently in the process of interviewing potential witnesses and collecting evidence to determine the circumstances surrounding the death.
The Sheriff’s Office is not releasing the victim’s name at this time, and no arrests have been made.
Agents do not believe that there is any danger to the community.
Anyone who may have information about this investigation is asked to please call the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Homicide Unit at 321-633-8413 or CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS (8477). All calls to CRIMELINE are confidential and callers can remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward.
Sebastian Daily will provide more information as it becomes available.
