Day, 29, was found dead in his home on Clay Chapel Road Tuesday night. His cause of death has not been released.

Sheriff's deputies received a call about 9:25 p.m. from a family member who had found Day unresponsive. Family members say they had not heard from Day since Tuesday morning. When they went to check on him, they didn't think he was home because he vehicle was gone, but they found him unresponsive in a bedroom.

"Just a bad situation all the way around," Sheriff Joe Browning said.

His cause of death is not being released, but Sheriff Browning tells that it is not a medical related death and is being investigated as a homicide.
