Michigan State Police are investigating a body being found at a boat launch in Grand Traverse County. The body of a 62-year-old man was found Tuesday night in Green Lake Township.

GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- Michigan State Police are investigating a body being found at a boat launch in Grand Traverse County.

The body of a 62-year-old man was found Tuesday night about 9:30 in Green Lake Township. People out ice fishing found the man's body near the Green Lake Boat Launch off Karlin Road.

While Michigan State troopers were at the boat launch, deputies with Grand Traverse County responded to a medical call at a home near the boat launch.

According to the sheriff's department, the 911 alert came in through text saying a 32-year-old man was having seizures, breathing, but "not responding right."

A woman at the home had been with the deceased victim earlier in the day. The woman was arrested on unrelated charges and taken to the Grand Traverse County Jail.

We're told the woman had a warrant out for her arrest from 13th Circuit Court for contempt of court, failure to appear regarding a child support case.

A cause of death is unknown, and an autopsy has been scheduled. The 62-year-old man has been identified, but his name is being withheld until family is notified.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Michigan State Police Cadillac Post at (231) 779-6040.
