The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) confirms a homicide investigation is underway after a 52-year old Flomaton man was found dead Wednesday.

“Dwight Dixon, 52, of Flomaton, was found deceased when officers from the Flomaton Police Department responded to an emergency call on Dixon Road,” ALEA said.
