PRICEVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Authorities are conducting a death investigation at a home in Priceville.

Police responded just after 5 a.m. Friday to a home on the 100 block of Meadow Lane. Investigators confirmed the victim was a 33-year-old woman.

Authorities said they are questioning they woman's on-again, off-again boyfriend in connection with the investigation. They said he was the one that found the body.

Police said the boyfriend made the 911 call a little after 5:30 a.m. on Friday morning. He told them he found Stacey Lauren Jones on the bedroom floor. There were no signs of forced entry.

Police secured the scene and collected evidence. They said there were no signs of any wounds, but there was some blood there. An autopsy was performed on Friday, and investigators said the results of that would steer the direction of the death investigation.

"What we have is a 33-year-old female," said Priceville Police Department Assistant Chief Ron Deweese. "There's no signs of what caused her death, so for not we are investigating it as possibly criminal. We're not ruling out natural either. We're still in the early stages of the investigation."
