GENERIC: crime tape, police line

The death of an 11-year-old Mid-Michigan girl has been ruled a homicide after she was found with a gunshot wound to her head.

Deputies from the Gratiot County Sheriff's Office responded to a residence in Arcada Township at 10:18 a.m. on Aug. 20 after a relative found the girl, now identified as Addison Redman.

Upon arrival, deputies discovered the girl's body with a gunshot wound to the head.

No one was home at the time, the sheriff's office said.

An autopsy was conducted on Wednesday, Aug. 21.

A pathologist has ruled the incident a homicide, Gratiot County Sheriff Michael Morris said.

The sheriff's office has a person of interest in this case and that person has been cooperating with investigators, Morris said.

Morris also said there is no danger to the public.

The Gratiot County Sheriff's Office is working in conjunction with the Michigan State Police Crime Lab on this case.
