Man dead in Bingham Township

TRAVERSE CITY — Authorities investigated the death of a man, 20, in Bingham Township.

The man, who came to Leelanau County from the Detroit area for a job, appeared to have died Tuesday evening from natural causes, Leelanau County Sheriff Mike Borkovich said.

“There didn’t appear to be anything that stood out at all,” Borkovich said. “There’s no evidence to lead us to believe it’s anything other than a natural death.”

Borkovich would not release the man's name because he wasn't sure whether family members had been notified.

Toxicology reports should be available in the next 30 days, Borkovich said.
