“Medics made the scene and pronounced the victim deceased,” according to the notice. 

DPD confirmed the victim was from Grand Blanc but did not release his name.

The victim was Jacob Hills, 18, who reportedly had been heading to a party in the city Saturday night, WXYZ-TV (Channel 7) reported. He did not return home.

His family tracked his phone to Dearborn Heights and filed a missing person’s report before receiving an anonymous call saying he was in a basement of a vacant apartment, the station reported. 

Facebook posts alerting users to his case said the teen was from Lake Orion and graduated from Grand Blanc High School this year.
