What started as an almost unbelievable call of a 9 year old falling from a 17th floor balcony quickly turned into mystery that police were able to solve this afternoon.

"Oh my God, that's horrible"

Fire and police swarm a beach side condo after a woman falls to her death from an upper floor.

"We can confirm that she fell or jumped from above the 16th floor," says Gulf Shores police Sgt. Jason Woodruff.

First responders go floor to floor at Seawind Condominium looking for clues and start knocking on doors looking for anyone who might have known her. "There was a witness to the fall on16 that saw her fall. Also people in a car that drove up kind of the same time," says Woodruff.

Vonda Green is staying with her family on the 7th floor of Seawind. "As a mother to think maybe it's my child. It's just the most horrifying thing."

A check of what cars belong at the condo and those that aren't registered turns up a red, BMW convertible. Police believe this maybe the victim's car and send an investigator to make sure and possibly break the news to family members.

"My heart goes out to the family when they hear this news," says Green. "How horrible it's going to be."

Police say there was a note but did not release why she jumped.
