Body found near running car
PARK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Sheriff's deputies are investing after a body was found at Amberwood Apartments in Ottawa County.
Family say the 38-year-old Park Township man had not reported to work on Sunday at his manufacturing job in Hudsonville.
They spent Monday searching for him and then called authorities.
When deputies arrived around midnight they found a vehicle running and recovered the victim's body outside the car on the passenger's side.
Investigators say it's possible the man had been out in the cold for quite some time.
"The vehicle can run for 24 hours, not terribly odd. What is unusual is no one calling it in. It's some of the things we're checking into," said Capt. Mark Bennett of the Ottawa County Sheriff's Office.
They say the man suffered some head trauma, which is why they are considering the death suspicious.
They say that could be amended after an autopsy, which is scheduled for Tuesday or Wednesday.
