WAYLAND, Mich. — Officials with the Michigan State Police post in Wayland say they have identified a body found on the Lake Michigan shoreline on Wednesday, Nov. 14 as 59-year-old Daniel Sprecksel of Racine.

Police say their preliminary investigation “does not indicate any suspicion surrounding his death, which remains under investigation.”
