EATON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say there may be a link between a person found dead in an Eaton County garage that was destroyed by fire and other suspected arsons in the area.

The Lansing State Journal reports (https://on.lsj.com/1rfetlO ) officials haven’t identified the body. Assistant Fire Chief Tyger Fullerton says officials speculate there may be a connection to the other fires, partly because the body was found near one site.

An autopsy is pending.

Within a half-mile of where the body was found, a detached garage and a pole barn were damaged by fire. Two other fires were reported Wednesday in the area. Officials say all three are suspected to be arson.

Sheriff’s deputies had been looking for a 17-year-old with a suspected connection to the fires. That search ended, but details weren’t released.
