THREE RIVERS, Mich. — A body was discovered Tuesday as the Michigan State Police investigated a burglary at a house north of Three Rivers.

MSP Lt. Chuck Christensen told FOX 17 NEWS that troopers arrived at a home in the 53000 block of Buckhorn Road and found that someone had broken into structures on the property. While conducting their investigation, the troopers found a man’s body inside the house.

They said the man was between the ages of 45 and 55, and appeared to have been dead for a long period of time.

Witnesses told troopers that earlier in the day they saw a red pickup truck with numerous people inside it leaving the home southbound on Bockhorn.

Christensen said the cause of death remains under investigation.
