One year later, Jamie Metzger death investigation still open, police say

One year after Jamie Metzger’s badly decomposed body was pulled from the basement of a Williams Township home, state police say they are still investigating the New Tripoli woman’s death as a possible homicide.

Lt. Kreg S. Rodrigues, the commander of Troop M’s criminal investigations section, confirmed that investigators met last week to discuss the cause of Metzger’s death, a question that has lingered since Dec. 7, 2017, when a man discovered her body in a sealed 50-gallon plastic storage bin.

The meeting comes on the heels of a story and podcast series by The Morning Call which focused on Metzger’s life, disappearance and the stalled investigation.

State police Trooper Ryan Seiple, the lead investigator in Metzger’s death investigation, said he met with the coroner’s office Wednesday for an update. He referred all other comments to Rodrigues, who said

Suspect in suspicious death investigation identified | News

KENT COUNTY  (WKZO  AM/FM) — Grand Rapids Police have released a little more information about a suspicious death case that may involve a missing woman from Oshtemo.

  Frankly they don’t know who the victim is because of the condition of the body.  Sgt. Dan Adams says until they do have positive identification, they are reluctant to speculate.

They will send samples to a State Police crime lab to see if they can get a DNA match  and that takes time.   What they have said is that 29-year-old Jared Chance will be charged today with mutilating a body and concealing the death of an individual.  Those are both felonies, holding charges that will allow them to keep Chance in custody until test results come back. 

The body was found wrapped in a tarp in the basement of the home by Chance’s downstairs neighbor.  Chance is a longtime acquaintance of Ashlee Young, who remains
