FLORENCE — The Florence Police Department is conducting a death investigation after a 33-year-old woman was found dead inside her North Florence apartment Saturday.

"At this point we are in the mist of a death investigation, nothing else," Florence Police detective Sgt. Brad Holmes said. "The body has been sent to the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences in Huntsville for an autopsy to determine the exact cause of her death."

He said there were no visible signs of foul play, "and we are investigating every aspect of her death to make sure there was no foul play involved."

Holmes said the woman was found after police were asked to go to the apartment in the 300 block of Simpson Street Saturday morning.
