MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) — Macomb County Sheriff Mark Hackel acknowledges that an independent autopsy showing a Michigan banker was shot in the head contradicts one done earlier claiming no evidence of blunt force.
Hackel tells WWJ-AM Thursday the discrepancy between an original autopsy performed by Macomb County medical examiner Daniel Spitz and one performed by Oakland County doctor L.J. Dragovic is "unfortunate" and delayed a search of Lake St. Clair where 62-year-old David Widlak's body was found Sunday.
Police on Wednesday found a handgun they believe fired the fatal shot.
Hackel said no suspects have been identified and suicide has not been ruled out. The case is being treated as a homicide.
Widlak was last was seen Sept. 19 at the Mount Clemens-based Community Central Bank Corp.
