Man electrocuted, 4 others arrested for burglary

(WXYZ) Livingston County - A death investigation has led to the arrest of four men for burglary.

On Dec. 20th, 2013, Washtenaw County dispatch received an anonymous call about an electrocution.  Deputies were dispatched to 300 N. Zeeb road to search the abandoned warehouse.  Once inside, they discovered the body of 29-year-old Matthew Albert Vair.  He was lying on the ground ear numerous power cabinets, which had their panels opened.

"They had been trying to scrap metal by removing electrical wire and must not have pulled the power.  He touched the wires and was electrocuted." said Washtenaw County Director of Community Engagement Derrick Jackson.

An investigation led law enforcement officers to four guys they say were with Vair at the time.  James Collazo, 41, Jeffrey Lominac, 22, Edward Collazo, 34 and Derrick Kuhn, 32, were arraigned on charges of breaking and entering and conspiracy to break and enter.
