The Eaton County Sheriff's office is reporting some unusual activity from over the weekend.

On Sunday, around 6 p.m., deputies were sent to check on a person they called, "suspicious." He was in the 1600 block of East Grand Ledge Highway (M-43), just west of Grand Ledge.

Apparently, he told people in the area that there might be a dead person inside a house nearby.

Deputies found the man and went to the the home where he said the body was and they did find a dead man inside it.

Deputies are investigating the incident as a homicide. They are holding a suspect in conjunction with the case.

The Michigan State Police told FOX 47 that they did send their crime lab in to help with the investigation.

Anyone who may have information about this case is asked to call D/Sgt. Josh Ivey at 517-543-5447.
