Authorities say that Kelly’s body was believed to have been discovered Sunday about 5 pm. after paramedics were dispatched to a medical call at a Johnson Homes apartment.

It is not immediately known if Kelly resided in that apartment.

Police investigators say several people were questioned overnight.

However, it is not immediately known if anyone has been charged in Kelly’s death.
