BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office is asking for the public’s help in locating family members related to a 36-year-old man who died last week in Birmingham.

Emmanuel Joe Pennington, 36, died after he became unresponsive following a collapse at the resident group home he stayed at on the 900 block of Hillview Drive in Birmingham on July 8. Pennington recently moved to Birmingham from Montgomery.

All attempts to locate his family have failed, but it’s believed he may have family living in Georgia.

Anyone with information regarding Pennington’s family is asked to contact the JCCO at 205-930-3603.
