MUSCLE SHOALS, AL (WAFF) - Authorities arrested a man in connection with a murder investigation in Colbert County Friday.

A missing woman's body was found on Fossick Lane in Cherokee. The victim was identified as 32-year-old Jessica Nicole Broadfoot.

Her boyfriend, Homajean Grisham III, was taken in for questioning after blood was found in his truck Friday morning.

Multiple agencies took evidence from the black pickup on Second Street near Union Avenue in Muscle Shoals.

Investigators said deputies received a call about a possible violent domestic situation between Grisham and his girlfriend. They put out a BOLO (be on the lookout) for the Grisham's vehicle after they received the call.

Investigators found Broadfoot's body in Colbert County several hours after the search began. They have not said how she died.

Grisham is being held in the Colbert County Jail under a $1,500,000 bond.
