FORT PAYNE, Ala. — On Friday, April 14, the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office received a call from 911 stating that a female had contacted emergency dispatch about a domestic violence situation on County Road 232, on Lookout Mountain.
DeKalb County Deputies, Alabama State Troopers, and DeKalb County Investigators responded to the call. When Deputies, Troopers, and Investigators arrived at the residence they observed a male subject face down and unresponsive in the road way behind the residence, at which time the DeKalb County Ambulance Service was called to the scene. The male subject was identified as Alberto Pablo Felipe, 36 of Fort Payne.
A short time after the Ambulance service arrived, Coroner Tom Wilson arrived on the scene and pronounced Felipe dead. District Attorney Mike O’Dell was then notified and an autopsy was ordered to be conducted. Felipe’s body was transported by DeKalb County Coroner’s office to Department of Forensic Science in Huntsville for an autopsy.
DeKalb County Sheriff Harris said of the incident, “Investigators, along with Deputies have worked all weekend and are continuing on following up on information today, as we are waiting for the results of the autopsy. This is an ongoing investigation and no further information can be given at this time.”
We'll update on the ruling of the autopsy when more information is available.
