Autopsy results expected after man found dead by running car

OTTAWA COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Police hope autopsy results will help shed light on what happened to an Ottawa County man found dead in the snow.

Police found the 38-year-old man next to his car with the engine still running at the Amberwood Apartments in Ottawa County's Park Township.

They believe he was there for at least 24 hours.

His family reported him missing after he failed to show up for work on Sunday night.

Police say it's clear the man suffered suspicious head trauma.

"I wouldn't have even thought twice to look down and the ground and find somebody laying there," said Mike Plumb who lives nearby. "I was pretty shocked, extremely shocked, to find out that somebody was actually dead laying there next to the car."   

Police are not releasing the victim's identity at this time.
