SCHOOLCRAFT TWP, Mich. — A burning shed led authorities in Kalamazoo County to a body inside.

Around 8:30 p.m. Thursday night, deputies went to the 11000 block of Portage Road near E. T Avenue on a call of a shed fire. It was put out by South County Fire, who in doing so discovered a 40-year-old local man lying dead inside.

The man has been identified as Dee Alan-Depew Joslin II.

Sheriff’s authorities say that a meth lab that was in the shed appears to have been a contributing factor in the fire.
