TROWBRIDGE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities in Allegan County are investigating the death of a 37-year-old man buried near a trailer in southwestern Michigan.

The county sheriff’s office says in a release that Damon Sheldon’s body was found Friday in Trowbridge Township, southwest of Grand Rapids.

Capt. Mike Larsen tells MLive.com that a woman called deputies and reported finding a large amount of blood on a sofa and her adult son missing.

Sheldon’s body was found after deputies discovered evidence of “a recent dig.”

While searching for Sheldon, deputies came upon a 25-year-old man sleeping in a different home on the property.



Larsen said the man is charged with murder and was related to Sheldon. The man is jailed and is expected to be arraignment Monday.
