FLINT, Michigan — Authorities say a body found near the Flint River has been identified as that of a woman who was reported missing from Calhoun County.
The Battle Creek Enquirer and MLive.com report the body of 44-year-old Amy Weinski of Homer Township was found Monday night along the river bank in Flint. The body was found about 85 miles from where Weinski lived and her death was ruled a homicide.
Officers say their investigation into the missing woman led them to the river. The search started after a vehicle that Weinski had rented was found burned Sunday in Genesee County's Mount Morris Township. The fire spread to and destroyed a nearby vacant house.
Authorities say a person of interest has been taken into custody and turned over to Mount Morris Township police.
