Family members searching in Detroit find missing man's body

Posted: Updated:

Family members searching in Detroit say they found the body of a 27-year-old suburban man who had been missing since early October.

The Detroit News reports that dental records on Tuesday confirmed that the remains found Sunday were those of Jacob Gasperoni of Hazel Park.

His brother says Gasperoni had been missing since leaving to catch a bus. The newspaper reports Gasperoni may have been involved in a fight with another man near where his body was found. Josh Gasperoni says he's "almost 100 percent positive there was foul play involved" in his brother's death.

WJBK-TV reports the decomposed body was found wrapped in a blanket.

Officer Jennifer Moreno says police are investigating as they await a determination about cause of death from the Wayne County medical examiner's office.
