Police investigating suspicious death in St. Clair Shores

Posted: Updated:
ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich. (WJBK) - A St. Clair Shores house has had two fires in it this week.

The first time everyone survived. Since then, the family has been staying with relatives  but two days later it caught fire again.

This time firefighters found a body inside who they are identifying as the male homeowner.

Police are not saying how the victim died, but confirms the death is suspicious and under investigation.

The victim will have an autopsy Thursday. But police and arson investigators are already separating the cases working the death and the fire as two unrelated crimes.

Friends of the family watched in disbelief, wondering what was really going on.

Neighbors talked to police offering whatever they could to help the investigation in the right direction.

The  family of the victim did not immediately come to the scene, but neighbors say this is the home of a nice couple -- with children in middle school, high school and kindergarten.
