Body found near campus identified by police

August 4, 2014

The Lansing Police Department has officially released the name of the person found dead near Dunckel Road and the U.S. 127 freeway interchange in Lansing on Friday.

According to a statement from Lansing Police Department Spokesman Robert Merritt, the man has been identified as 33-year-old Mark Alan Luplow. The Lansing resident was reported missing on June 24.

As of right now, foul play is not suspected.

More details regarding the cause of death will be released as they become available from the autopsy report.

He added after Ludlow's family reported him missing, many police departments put the forces forward to search multiple jurisdictions. Any last-known or suspected locations, or anywhere the police received a signal from tracking his phone, were searched by the agencies.

"Multiple law enforcement agencies were searching for him," he said. "Where he was found, there are 150 acres of dense wooded land."

The results of the autopsy usually come in within a 24-48 hours window, but the medical examiner's office said they are backed up, Merritt said.
