WARREN (WWJ) - Warren police are investigating after a man’s body was found in a drainage ditch behind a motel.

Officials worked into the afternoon to retrieve the remains from the Red Run River drain — about 20 feet below street level.

A man walking his dog near the Motel 6 and Lowe’s store on Chicago Road — in the are of 13 Mile Road and Van Dyke — spotted the body. A witnessed at the scene said authorities believed it had been down there for weeks.

An age and description of the deceased were not immediately available.

The Macomb County Medical Examiner’s Office is expected to conduct an autopsy to determine a cause of death.
