A man who was found dead in a house fire in Birmingham back in May has now been identified. The victim’s name is Rodney Maurice Walker Jr., and he was 25 years old, living in Cottondale.

The incident took place on Monday, May 22, when emergency services received a report of a house fire at the 4000 Block of Old Lewisburg Road.
