ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. – A woman was found dead at an Altamonte Springs apartment complex, and police are interviewing a person of interest.
Police said they responded to a well-being check at 909 Ballard Street Tuesday morning, near Ronald Reagan Boulevard and Eastmonte Park.
Investigators said they don’t believe there are any other suspects at large.

Police said the victim is in her 20s, and they believe the person of interest is known to the victim.
“That subject, a male subject also in his early 20s, is currently in custody and being interviewed by investigators,” said police spokeswoman Michelle Sosa. “At this time, we are still trying to gather that information as far as the relationship between not only the female victim that we have in custody but also the caller.”
Neighbors watched on in shock at what police said is a homicide investigation.
“It’s actually usually quiet. I’m surprised that even happened,” said neighbor Yaheem Stanley. “I seen the cop cars. That area over there was taped off.”
Another neighbor — who told News 6 she would like to remain anonymous — said she can’t believe what happened and worries about her safety.
“It makes me question my safety,” she said. “I was just about to go to the office and say, ‘Hey, what’s going on,’ because I have grandkids, and they be out here.”
Police said they still don’t know how the woman died or how long her body may have been in the apartment before police found her.
