Detectives with the Battle Creek Police Department are investigating the discovery of a body inside the trunk of a vehicle at a tow yard. Authorities were called Tiger's Towing on S. Kendall Street at around 9:40 Monday morning. The vehicle’s owner reportedly discovered the victim after being contacted to come and pick up the car which had been towed over the weekend.

At this time, the victim’s death appears to be suspicious. Officers reportedly transported the vehicle to the police department so they can conduct further investigations. The police department says no other information is available right now, but they do not believe there is any danger to the community.
