Human remains found in China Township

(China Township)  The remains of a person were found this afternoon on Allington Road and Fred Moore Highway in China Township.


According to St. Clair County Sheriff Tim Donnellon, a citizen called in a suspicious incident at approximately 4:00.  Deputies responded and discovered parts of a body in garbage bags along the roads.  At this time, there has been no determination of sex or race of the body.


Once on the scene, another citizen told deputies they observed a mid- 1990’s SUV type vehicle in the area, dumping what the caller believed to be garbage from the vehicle.  The vehicle is believed to be white or gray in color, possibly a GMC Jimmy or Chevrolet Trailblazer.  That vehicle was being driven by a middle age Caucasian woman.


“We are treating this incident as a homicide,” said Sheriff Donnellon.  “We are asking for the public’s help to solve this crime.  If anyone observed anything unusual in the area of Fred Moore Highway and Allington Road between noon and 4:00 p.m., please contact our office at (810) 985-8115.”


Detectives from the Sheriff’s Office remain on the scene at this time.  The Michigan State Police Crime Lab has sent a team from Sterling Heights to assist in the investigation.
