Body is identified

A body found in southwestern Michigan in October has been identified as that of one of two missing men linked to a man authorities say was found with a bloody mattress in the back of a pickup truck.  The Kalamazoo Gazette and the Battle Creek Enquirer report authorities announced Monday that the body found in Kalamazoo County’s Brady Township was that of 33-year-old Michael VanBuskirk of Battle Creek.  Harold Ordway faces a weapons charge after authorities say they found a gun following the minor Sept. 2 accident near Plainwell.  Authorities were investigating the 41-year-old’s possible involvement in the disappearance VanBuskirk and 53-year-old Paul Atchley, who also had lived with Ordway and hasn’t been seen since August.  Defense lawyer Thomas Clement said in an email Tuesday no other charges are pending.(AP)
