A homicide investigation is underway after the body of a missing man was found in Detroit. Family members say Jason Kudla's body was discovered in Detroit.

Kudla's body was found Sunday morning around 6:30 a.m. near Davison and Dean, but a connection was not made until Thursday, August 3.

Jason's father Larry Kudla now knows what's happened to his 30-year-old son who had been missing for several days after attending a party with friends in Hamtramck last weekend.

Jason's body was found burning in between two vacant houses on Dean Street near the Davison around 6:30 Sunday morning.

We're told dental records had to be used to link the body to Kudla who was reportedly last seen leaving a party at a friend's house near Evaline Street and Conant around 1:00 a.m. Sunday.

Right now, the manner and cause of death are listed as pending, but Detroit Police are treating Kudla's death as a homicide.

Anyone with any information in the case is urged to call Detroit Police Homicide investigators at 313-596-2260

Kudla had a twin brother that passed away in 2012. His father said Jason did struggle with heroin addiction, but had been through rehab. "My heart is broken in ways you can't imagine," Larry Kudla said.

The investigation is ongoing. The cause of death is pending.
