Human Remains Found in Lot on Niles Avenue; WITH UPDATE


_______________
Shortly after 8:30 AM, on this date, the SBPD was called to a auto storage lot, located in the 100 block of North Niles Avenue. The lot, which is owned by Lasalle Body Shop, is surrounded by a fence. While a worker was reportedly performing some grounds keeping tasks, the skeleton remains of a human were found in a severely overgrown part of the lot. The St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Unit (MHU) were immediately summoned and an investigation is currently underway.

Although there was printed identification found with the remains, medical personnel and the Coroner's Office will have to positively identify the deceased due to the condition of the body. Anyone with information on this found body is asked to call MHU at 574.235.5009 or Crime Stoppers at 574.288.STOP
