Detroit police have a murder mystery on their hands, after a man's lifeless body was found this morning at an abandoned home on the city's east side.

Police say the man was missing since Saturday.

The scene cleared a short time ago, but investigators were there for several hours.

They say a body was found at the abandoned home this morning –a GPS tracking device on the victim's car led them there.

Homicide detectives with the Detroit Police Department spent most of the day combing the area for clues, after the body of a man in his 30s was found at the abandoned home on the 14100 block of Spring Garden on the city's east side.

Sources say the man, who lived in Warren, talked to his girlfriend around two Saturday afternoon, telling her he had to meet up with someone in Detroit.

That would be the last time she talked with him.

Police say the girlfriend reported him missing yesterday in Warren and an investigator with the Warren Police Department used a dealership GPS device that was on his white SUV to track him to the abandoned home where his body was found this morning.

While it's still unclear how he died, police say it appears he was shot multiple times.

If you have any information on who did this, you're urged to call the Detroit Police Department or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
