      Ishpeming Police say 51-year-old Wayne Perry of Ishpeming was found dead in his home at 320 West Johnson Street Tuesday night.

      A suspect in the death of 51-year-old Wayne Perry is in custody.

      According to a press release from Ishpeming Police Friday afternoon, witness interviews turned up a suspect.

      The person is expected to be charged with open murder.

      Additional details were also provided.

      Apparently, police received a 911 call on Tuesday concerning an unresponsive male located at 320 West Johnson Street.

      The victim was later pronounced dead at Bell Hospital.

      Police originally thought the death appeared to be from an overdose.

      However, an autopsy at Marquette General later found hidden head injuries. The case was then treated as a homicide.

      Investigators identified the suspect, whom they now have in custody, after conducting witness interviews who were at the scene.

      The suspect's name has not been released.

      The investigation continues into this case.
