Briarvale Road Auburn Hills
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -

Auburn Hills police are investigating an incident where a 42-year-old man was found living with his father's dead body.

Police said officers on Friday went to check on the man at the home he shared with his 70-year-old father in the 3800 block of North Briarvale Road, which is off Adams Road.

They found the father’s body inside -- he had been dead for more than a week from apparent natural causes.

Police said there were no signs of visible trauma on the father and more tests would be run through the medical examiner’s office.

Police said they have submitted the case to the prosecutor’s office for a review of charges.
