A Michigan car owner discovered a human body in the trunk of a vehicle after picking it up from a tow lot, the Battle Creek Enquirer reports. The Toyota Camry was towed over the weekend after a homeowner reported it was left on private property during the night, cops said. The owner of the car was contacted Monday and, after going to the lot to pick it up, discovered a body in the trunk that's since been identified as 43-year-old Diabulo White of Battle Creek. Police did not say if there was any relationship between White and the car owner. Meanwhile, WWMT reports that a person of interest in the case was arrested on an unrelated charge after police received a tip that led them to the person's home. Police say, once there, they found a firearm, which they say may or may not be connected to White's murder. (More murder stories.)
