MONTROSE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) - The Oakland County Medical Examiner has completed an autopsy on the body believed to be that of missing Troy man.
However, the results will not be released because the body has not been officially identified yet.
Confirmation of the body's identity will be determined by the Oakland County Medical Examiner's Office. It is not clear how long that will take. The body is believed to be that of Patrick Mikes, Sr.
It was found at the edge of a corn field on Morrish Road, a half mile north of Lake Road in Montrose Township on Friday, near a bicycle that is believed to belong to Mikes .
Police say they called the search off for the night on Thursday, a mere 30 feet away from where the body was found on Friday.
The search area included a 25-square mile area which spread into Saginaw County.
Patrick Mikes Jr. was arraigned on open murder charges in connection with his father’s disappearance on Thursday.
Wednesday night police held a press conference to announce the arrest of the 21-year-old Patrick Mikes Jr.
“We have met the burden, the extremely high burden that the prosecutor’s office has set for us to meet in order to get that warrant,” said Troy Police Captain Robert Redmond. “I am confident, as they are confident that Mr. Mikes was killed by his son.”
Police say DNA tests show that the massive amount of blood found in the family’s basement after Mikes Senior was reported missing, belonged to both he and his son.
