The person of interest wanted in connection with Sandra Revells’ death was captured early this morning, according to statement the Lee County Sheriff’s Office posted on its Facebook page by 11:30 a.m. today.
Authorities said Stanley Lee Davis was located in an unoccupied mobile home near the residence of Revells, who they found dead of apparent “unnatural means” Monday morning in an Opelika residence at Lee Road 622.
Davis, 51, is currently being held in the Lee County Detention Center on trespassing charges unrelated to the ongoing homicide investigation into Revells’ death, according to the post.
Authorities said they received a call around 9:05 a.m. CST Monday from Revells’ son who stated that his 57-year-old mother “had suffered some type injury” and needed help.
Deputies said they responded to the home and found the woman unresponsive on the bedroom floor.
“ The victim had visible signs of injury that were believed to be the result of a physical action,” the agency said in a separate Facebook post.
Lee County Coroner Bill Harris said he pronounced Revells dead at the scene at 10 a.m. Monday. Her body is scheduled to be sent to the Department of Forensic Sciences in Montgomery for a postmortem examination, and the details regarding the manner and cause of death should be known in the next few days, authorities said.
The Lee County Coroner’s Office, LCSO and ADFS continue to investigate the case.
Anyone with information concerning the incident is encouraged to contact the LCSO at 334-749-5651 or the Lee County Crime Stoppers hotline at 888-522-7847.
