Friday, June 9, at a home on 4th Avenue West in Sipsey, officers with the Walker County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a family member found dead inside the home. At the scene, investigators found out that Leandrew Smith, 61, lived with what authorities believed, was a man that had been dead for days without reporting the death to the police, according to a Facebook post by the County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday

Justin Hagler told that the victim was his father whom he had not heard from since June 7, Tuesday. Since his father was roommates with Smith, Hagler reportedly contacted Smith and asked about his father’s whereabouts. Hagler said, “He didn’t tell me my dad was in the house.”
