CUSTER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Northern Michigan authorities say they’ve confirmed the identity of a second man found dead in a tent alongside his brother following the cold and snowy winter.

Antrim County Sheriff Daniel S. Bean announced Thursday that a DNA test shows the dead man was 51-yearold Robert Nothstine. Last week, investigators used fingerprints to identify the other man as 56-year-old Daniel Nothstine.

Bean isn’t releasing information on the cause of their deaths.

People searching for deer antlers found the bodies of two long-dead men April 30 in a tent in Custer Township. It’s near Mancelona and about 30 miles east-northeast of Traverse City.

Bean says the men’s clothing was tattered and was decomposing after one of Michigan’s coldest and snowiest winters ever. He says the tent didn’t have a heater.
