Investigators with the Shelby County Sheriff's Office, along with the Columbiana Police Department, are investigating a death off of Looney Road on Friday.

Detective Corporal David Alexander with Columbiana Police Department said they received a call about the death before noon.

Alexander said the man, believed to be in his 50's, was deceased when they arrived at a home off of Looney Road.

Police say they didn't see any wounds on the victim and they don't know how he died. Authorities said the man did not live at the home.

"It's a standard investigation. We turn over all the stones and we're going to be talking to as many people as we possibly can about what happened. We'll be examining all the evidence that exists and we'll go from there and we'll try to make our determinations there," Columbiana Police Detective David Alexander said.

The case remains under investigation.
