Lansing Police need your assistance to identify a body.

They are asking for help on the body that was pulled out of a Lansing sewer on Aug. 21.

The Lansing fire department removed the remains of a body from the sewer system at Herbert and Wilson streets.

Police said that due to the state of decomposition that no determination of the gender or identity of the body had been made.

Lansing Police public information officer Robert Merritt told News 10 that the public service workers were doing routine checks of the sewer system at Herbert Street and Wilson Street, which is near Cedar Street and Baker Street, when they found what they thought was a body that was quite decomposed. This happened around 10 AM.

The autopsy showed that the body is that of a male described to be approximately 5’2”– 5’7” in height and approximately 110 – 130 pounds in weight.

The detectives are asking people to come forward if they have information on the body, which could possibly be an unreported missing person.

Anyone with information is directed to call Lansing Police Detective Mike Looney at 517-483-6869 or Michigan State Police Detective Andrew Adamczyk at 517-483-6866
