WYOMING, Mich. — Wyoming Police Chief James Carmody told reporters the man who took his own life after a chase Thursday night was Brady Oestrike of Wyoming.

The body of Brooke Ann Slocum, 18, was found in the trunk of Oestrike’s vehicle.

Carmody confirmed that Oestrike had made a connection online with Slocum through Craigslist, but he would not elaborate in a Friday morning news conference.

FOX 17 did a background check which revealed no criminal record for Oestrike.
