No ID yet on ‘mystery' body found July 4 in Lake Michigan

Body found with no ID

LELAND, MICH. - More than three weeks later, authorities in northern Michigan still are trying to identify the body of a man found in Lake Michigan.

The body was found on July 4, about a mile from the Leland Harbor in Leelanau County. It was a white man believed to be between ages 50 and 75.

The sheriff’s office released a photo sketch of what the man probably looked like before his death. A small boat was discovered about eight miles from the body, but there is no known connection.

Sheriff Mike Borkovich calls it a “mystery.” Anyone with information can call 231-256-8800.
