Marion Police say they have a person of interest in custody but so far no charges have been filed in what officials are calling a homicide investigation.

Officers received a call to do a welfare check at 560 Hillview Drive in Marion yesterday morning at around 9 a.m. After officers entered the rear of the home, they discovered the body and called in crime scene investigators.

Neighbors told KCRG that a family that had lived in the rental home had moved out between a few weeks and a month ago.

Police officials also searched another house on Monday night. Officers searched the residence at 1280 14th Street in Marion and confirmed it was in connection to the ongoing investigation.
