Brown is not considered a suspect but he may have information relevant to the murder investigation, Lyman said.

Brown, 29, is described as African-American, 5-feet, 9-inches tall, 160 pounds with brown eyes and long, black hair.

MCSO deputies discovered Antipala's body around 10:15 a.m.

It is believed Antipala, 56, had lived there for about two years, while her son lived with her on and off for about a year.
