GRATIOT COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A concerned family member checks on a loved one only to find him dead, and investigators believe the death is suspicious.

The Gratiot County Sheriff’s Department was called to Lumberjack Road in Riverdale on Oct. 7 at 9:45 a.m. after John Erskin’s nephew found him dead.

Erskin had a legal marijuana grow operation and investigators found that all the plants were missing and surveillance cameras and alarms were all missing or broken.

An autopsy found that the victim died by numerous blunt object blows to the head and body.

The sheriff’s department is asking that if you had contact with John Erskin during the past week, or if you saw any suspicious activity at the home on Lumberjack Road to call Detective Mike Morris at (989) 875-5211.
