HAMLIN TWP. — Detectives from Mason County Sheriff’s Office are on scene of what is being described as a “suspicious death” near West Jagger Road east of North Lakeshore Drive.

Late Sunday morning, sheriff deputies, Hamlin Township Fire Dept. medical first responders and Life EMS ambulance were called to a report of a deceased male in the woods. Initial dispatch information indicated that the cause may have been a suicide.

Sheriff Kim Cole confirmed the death of the 26-year-old Mason County man was not a suicide, but rather “suspicious.”

The Mason County Sheriff’s Office Victims Assistance Unit were called to help with the victim’s family while Pere Marquette Fire Department’s ladder truck was dispatched to assist detectives in documenting the scene. Sheriff Cole said investigators were attempting to retrieve evidence but were facing a challenge with impending snow. 

Cole said more information will be released Monday morning.
