Snowmobiler discovers northern Michigan family of 3, including baby boy, dead after ‘unfortunate tragedy’
The bodies of a family of three were discovered in northern Michigan outside a pickup truck that appeared to have gotten stuck in what sheriff’s office officials are calling an “unfortunate tragedy.”
The Ogemaw County Sheriff’s office said a snowmobiler discovered the bodies of Amanda Pomeroy, Douglas Dougherty and their baby son, Jacob, shortly before 4:30 a.m. Saturday along Stoney Ridge Road in a remote area of Rose Township.
On Tuesday, Undersheriff Paul Frechette told Fox News the autopsy examination had been completed and investigators had learned their deaths were not suspicious and no criminality was believed to have been involved.
“Preliminary results indicate hypothermia and exposure to the winter elements as the preliminary cause of death, pending toxicology results and a final autopsy report,” the sheriff’s office said in a Wednesday press release.
Frechette called the deaths an “unfortunate tragedy.”
