State Police Investigating Felonious Assault and Homicide

Two men from Mount Pleasant are facing felonious assault and homicide charges. State police from the Mount Pleasant Post were sent to interview the assault victim at a local hospital on Wednesday, and were led to a home in Union Township after further investigation.

As troopers were about to make contact with the suspect inside the home, he and two others drove off, causing a crash. Troopers, with help from the Mid-Michigan Investigative Narcotics Team, known s MINT, detained all three men, two of whom needed medical treatment.

Troopers then found the body of a woman during a search of the suspect’s home, with evidence indicating two of the men were suspects in the homicide. The 20-year-old and 19-year-old men were waiting for formal charges Friday in the Isabella County Jail.

State Police were assisted by the Mid-Michigan Investigative Team (MINT), Mount Pleasant Police Department, Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Police Department, Isabella County Sheriff’s Office, Central Michigan University Police Department, Michigan State Police East Lansing Crime Lab, Hart Post Detectives, Lakeview Post Detectives, Michigan State Police Sixth District Special Investigations Section Detectives, the Isabella Emergency Services Team, and the Isabella County Prosecutor’s Office.
