LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. - Deputies continue to work a homicide investigation in Lehigh Acres. A crime scene was roped off on 21st Street SW near Susan Avenue for most of Wednesday.
The body of an adult woman was discovered sometime Wednesday morning. A 911 call was placed around 9:30 A.M.
Deputies confirmed that they have a man in custody as a person of interest.
Details on exactly what happened are sketchy. But WINK news talked to one neighbor who heard a gunshot Tuesday night.
"I came in and told my wife, I just heard a gunshot out there, and it was loud. It wasn't a .22, it was 9mm or better," said Eddie Maurice.
He says he didn't think anything of it because he hears gunshots all the time.
Deputies served a search warrant around 4:30 P.M. Wednesday at 3405 21st Street SW.
The investigation is on going but deputies say they are not looking for anyone else at this time.
