Kent City — Sheriff’s deputies checking a home north of Grand Rapids have discovered a 2 ½-year-old girl and the body of a man who had been dead for days.

The Kent County sheriff’s office says the child was unharmed. She apparently was under the man’s care when he died. There’s no sign of foul play at the house in the Kent City area.

The 49-year-old man was watching the girl for a friend. Deputies checked the home Tuesday at the request of the man’s relatives. His name was not immediately released.
