A 36-year-old Flint man is being held in the Lapeer County Jail in connection with the death of a 37-year-old Flint woman, whose dismembered remains were found in a freshly dug, shallow grave in Elba Township.
According to a news release issued today, the Lapeer County Sheriff’s Office received a tip at about noon Wednesday regarding a buried body at a home on Davison Road.
Deputies arriving at the home saw what looked to be a fresh grave site and excavated the dirt enough to see that a body indeed was there
The Michigan State Police Bridgeport Crime Lab helped retrieve the body, which was sent to the Lapeer County Medical Examiner’s Office for autopsy.
Authorities said the property owner is an acquaintance of the man in custody but not a suspect.
The Flint man, who was arrested Thursday at a home near Center and Lapeer roads in the city of Flint, is considered a person of interest, although no charges have been filed.
