JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man in connection to a homicide investigation after a woman was found dead in a Southside apartment complex Tuesday night.
According to JSO, officers arrived at the Auburn Glen Apartments on Southside Boulevard, just north of Baymeadows Road, a little after 9 p.m. Tuesday in response to a disturbance call. Officers said residents told them they heard loud banging and screaming coming from one of the apartments.
“Probably around like 8:45ish we heard like two screams that were like right back to back,” neighbor Lori Sterling told News4JAX.
According to JSO, residents also reported that they saw a man in all black clothing leave through the back of the apartment shortly afterward.
When officers entered the apartment, they found a woman dead inside. They have not disclosed her cause of death but said an autopsy will be conducted by the medical examiner.
Officers, including K9 units, began canvassing the area to find the man allegedly involved. JSO said investigators are still looking for him.
According to JSO, no one else was inside the apartment at the time. Officers said they are working on identifying the woman who was killed. They do believe this was an isolated incident.
Sterling said her neighbor told her that she saw a man dressed in all black behind their apartment building around 8 p.m. Tuesday.
“It’s real close,” Sterling said. “Like you understand these things occur, but then it’s also just like, this is in the building I almost parked in front of yesterday.”
