Police ID Man Found Dead as Church Deacon; Andrew Jerome Stephens Found in Apartment When Maintenance Saw Smoke

Article excerpt

The 53-year-old man who was found dead Tuesday afternoon in Oaks at Durkeeville apartments has been identified as Andrew Jerome Stephens by the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

Stephens was a deacon at the Pentecostal Church of God in Christ on Hiram Street, only a mile west of the apartments off West Sixth Street.

He was found dead in the apartment after a maintenance man was sent there about 2:30 p.m. to check on him by his daughter, Sgt. T.K. Waters said. The maintenance man found smoke coming out of the apartment and called firefighters. The front door was locked, but the back door was not, Waters said.

His cause of death was not released, but the Sheriff's Office said it's being investigated as a homicide.
