PARK TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A man who was reported missing by his family was found dead late Monday night, and the death is being treated as suspicious.

The investigation started when family members reported that the victim hadn’t shown up for work at his job in Hudsonville.

Deputies went to his apartment at Amberwood Apartments in Park Township, where they found the body of a 38-year-old man.  The victim was next to his still-running vehicle.

Police say there was visible head trauma, but the origins of that trauma have not been determined.

An autopsy will be performed on Tuesday or Wednesday to determine a cause of death.
