Blunt force trauma caused death in Saginaw County bones mystery

SAGINAW COUNTY (WJRT) (8/15/2019) – Investigators still don’t know whose bones were found in a rural wooded area of Saginaw County a year ago, but they can now say that person died of blunt force trauma.

Police determined bones found on this wooded property in rural Chapin Township were a white or Hispanic male who died of blunt force trauma.

The person’s death is considered suspicious, said Saginaw County Sheriff Bill Federspiel.

He said the remains found last September in Chapin Township were “pretty close to a full skeleton.” A Michigan State University forensic anthropologist determined the bones are that of a white or Hispanic man.

Federspiel said the man was between the ages of 25 to 55 and about 5-foot-2 to 5-foot-10. The forensic report shows the man was injured in some manner, so much so that it doesn’t appear he died of a medical condition.
