A woman was found dead in her Caldwell home Saturday. Meanwhile, a Noble County man is behind bars and police are trying to figure out if the two are related.
43-year-old Alberta Crawford was found dead in her apartment on Spruce Street Saturday.
Hours before her death she told police she'd been assaulted by a neighbor.
Officers immediately arrested that man, 48-year-old Edgar Poland, but when they returned to Crawford's apartment to finish their report they found her dead on the floor.
Officers kicked in the door, but couldn't revive her.
An autopsy will determine her cause of death.
Poland is being held on unrelated felony charges.
The investigation is on going, but results of the autopsy could lead to more charges being filed against Poland.
