Son of Detroit-area police chief found dead in vacant home
DETROIT (AP) — The body of the 55-year-old son of a suburban Detroit police chief has been found in a burned-out Detroit house.
Warren police Commissioner Bill Dwyer says, “Sadly, it’s true.” He confirmed the discovery of Michael Dwyer’s body to radio station WWJ .
The fire occurred on Oct. 26 in a vacant house, but the body wasn’t discovered until Wednesday. Southfield police were following up on a missing person’s report.
Detroit fire Commissioner Eric Jones says the house was too dangerous to search immediately after the fire was extinguished. He called it a “firefighter safety issue.”
Warren Mayor Jim Fouts says Dwyer and his wife are devastated. The case is under investigation.
