Missing Grosse Pointe Park Man Found Dead On Belle Isle

Grosse Pointe Park police found the dead body of 46-year-old resident, James Scott Ivers, Thursday afternoon behind the Nature Center on Belle Isle in Detroit. He was lying facedown in what the public safety director described as a swampy area with pools of standing water.

Park Public Safety Director David Hiller said shortly after discovering Ivers' body Thursday that although the Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office will determine his cause of death, investigators have no reason to believe it was a homicide or suicide. Hiller described it as a "horrible tragedy," and he believes Ivers may have become disoriented after a crash.
