A body was found among the debris of a barn that burned early Tuesday morning just south of Sheridan.
The Sheridan Fire Department responded to the fire at 2:34 a.m. to 6681 S. Sheridan Road (M-66) north of Sessions Road. Several other area fire departments also responded to the scene.
Later in the morning the Sheridan Fire Chief contacted the Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office to report that they had located a body in the building. Montcalm County Detectives were immediately dispatched to the scene and the State Fire Marshall was requested to assist.
According to a report in the Greenville Daily News, the property belongs to Phebe Wilson, the mother of state senator Judy Emmons. She told the Daily News that they didn’t know who the person in the barn was.
The body was reportedly unrecognizable and is yet to be identified.
The fire is still under investigation.
