Suspect in custody after man's body found in truck in Van Buren Township


Michigan State Police made an arrest late Sunday after a man’s body was discovered in the bed of a pickup truck parked in a weeded area along Bellevile Road in Van Buren Township.

Detectives still were gathering evidence and conducting interviews, MSP Metro Detroit said on Twitter.

Other details were not immediately provided but police said earlier Sunday that the location of the body, near Belleville and Quirk roads, is not where the slaying took place. They determined the death took place in Wayne.

The slaying was “not a random crime,” police said.

Investigators were contacted around 10:15 a.m. Sunday by Van Buren Township Police after the unidentified man’s body was discovered, MSP Metro Detroit said on Twitter.
