A missing man’s body was recovered in the ventilation system of a small community college in Clinton Township outside of Detroit, Michigan. The circumstances of his death and the events that led to the discovery of his body inside the vents are still a mystery.
According to People, the body of 36-year-old Jason Anthony Thompson was found in the ventilation system of Macomb Community College. Campus Police uncovered Thompson's body after investigating a “foul odor” pouring from the vents into the college’s performing arts center.
Thompson was last seen leaving his sister's apartment. According to his sister Shelby, that was around 5:41 pm on October 25. Shelby then told police she last heard from her brother over a text message. She received that last message at 9:40 pm the same day. His disappearance was reported to the Sterling Heights Police Department on November 1. Sterling Heights Police Department was saddened to hear the news about the discovery of Anthony’s body. "Sterling Heights detectives exhausted every resource and led in attempts to locate Mr Thompson," said Public Information Officer Lt. Mario Bastianelli to The Independent.
Thompson had no affiliation with Macomb College and how he gained access to campus has not been revealed. However, Campus Police Chief Willam Leavens believes Thompson's death was not the result of "foul play."
Macomb College issued this statement, “The Community College extends heartfelt condolences during this difficult time to Mr. Thompson’s family and friends.”
According to a GoFundMe page set up by his cousin Carissa Towns, Thompson was a father to two children. Towns hope to raise $15 thousand for funeral expenses to give Anthony a proper burial. With the mystery surrounding the circumstances of Thompson’s death, ruling out foul play can not be done until a formal investigation. For Anthony to have passed at a college he did not work or attend and to have his body end up inside the vents, the circumstances of his passing are still to be uncovered. A further police investigation into the last moments of his life will uncover helpful information to give his family peace.
