Body of missing University of Michigan Law School student found
A University of Michigan Law School student reported missing last month hanged himself, Washtenaw County sheriff's deputies said.
The body of 35-year-old Casey Neil McGinnis was found Wednesday afternoon in a wooded area behind the Washtenaw County Recreation Center on Washtenaw Avenue, deputies said.
Recreation center employees contacted the sheriff's department to report a car had been parked in the lot for a couple weeks, said Derrick Jackson, the sheriff's department's director of community engagement.
Deputies responded Wednesday and discovered it was McGinnis' car, Jackson said.Â They searched the area and found the body about 80 yards behind the building, Jackson said.
It's unclear when McGinnis died. The Washtenaw County Medical Examiner's Office is investigating, Jackson said.
McGinnis' family members contacted Ann Arbor police Nov. 12 to report him missing.Â McGinnis, who lived at an apartment on Prospect Street in Ann Arbor, hadn't contacted family members since the previous day, and they were concerned for his well-being.
