Police suspect a man choked to death in a small window while trying to slip inside his ex-wife's mobile home.

But family members say 46-year-old Tommy Dixon wouldn't have done it and that the setup simply didn't make sense. They say the window was too small and too high to even try to get in.

Someone called 911 on Thursday morning after seeing Dixon's body hanging from the window.

Police are awaiting an autopsy before ruling anything out.
