“We obviously investigated the death and the circumstances around the death and determined what had happened and, ultimately, the woman was arrested on an outstanding warrant,” Bouchard said.
She eventually reported that the victim picked her up at her Pontiac residence earlier in the day. They then drove to another Pontiac residence where they had consensual sex. At that time the man had some trouble breathing and told her he had an asthmatic condition.
The man and the woman’s identities have not yet been released.MORE NEWS: Detroit Fire Department Passes Out Free Smoke Detectors Following Fatal Fire
