Amber Guyger sentenced

Police are investigating the mysterious death of a Clinton Township man who was reported missing and later found dead in a burned Detroit home.

Darius Campbell, 29, was last seen Aug. 31, and since that day, family members and friends worked nonstop to find him, police said. He was reported missing by Detroit police in early September, a week after his red 2003 Chrysler Town & Country was found in the city.
