Man dead for months found surrounded by beer cans

Traverse City Record-Eagle

Traverse City, Mich. — The body of a man found dead in his unheated Traverse City home was there for months.

Capt. Jeff O'Brien says a relative called police after she hadn't heard from 54-year-old Douglas Rose. Police entered the home Thursday and found the body on a couch surrounded by beer cans.

O'Brien says it's not a case of foul play. He tells the Traverse City Record-Eagle that Rose likely died in December.
