FINDLAY — The investigation continues into a Michigan man’s death.
On Oct. 1, partial human remains were found in a sleeping bag by an ODOT worker south of Findlay on Interstate 75. On Friday the Lucas County Coroner identified the remains as David D. Carter, 39, of Melvindale, Michigan. Other remains, also identified through DNA testing as Carter, were reportedly found near an apartment in Melvindale.
On Wednesday, investigators were back out on I-75, south of Findlay, looking for potential evidence in the case. Traffic was blocked for a time while troopers and crime scene technicians processed the scene.
The case is being investigated as a homicide, but no one is in custody. A Detroit TV station reported this week that a person of interest that was originally arrested has been released.
A two-sentence statement on Wednesday’s investigation on I-75 was released by the Ohio State Highway Patrol:
“While conducting an additional search between Findlay and Bluffton we have located potential evidence related to a missing person case. The case remains under investigation.”
