MARQUETTE - During an investigation into the disappearance of a Marquette man, Marquette Police uncovered an unidentified body at the abandoned building at 231 W. Washington St., Friday afternoon.
Police Chief Mike Angeli has confirmed a "badly decomposed" body had been located in the building during a search for 34-year-old Shawn Michael Dollar, who was reported missing on Sept. 13 and who had last been seen on Sept. 8. Angeli said it had not been determined whether the body that was found was connected to Dollar's disappearance.
"We've got what appears to be a deceased person," Angeli said. "That (the search for Dollar) is what lead us in this direction."
Angeli said investigators were waiting for the arrival of the Michigan State Police Crime Lab before gaining entry into the building.
