BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Birmingham police are investigating the killing of a person who was found dead on the floor of a home.

Police said in a statement that the victim was found Sunday evening with injuries that appeared to be stab wounds to the chest and neck areas. They said a neighbor found the body when she went to check on the person at the residence on 39th Street South.

Detectives say they believe the crime stemmed from a burglary of the residence.

Detectives were looking for the victim’s vehicle, which was taken from the location. It is described as a 1994 tan Buick Park Avenue.

Police said the deceased person’s identity would be released once immediate family members are notified.
