Chelsea Bruck – A woman’s decomposed body was discovered while dirt was being moved at a construction site Friday in Southeastern Michigan’s Monroe County, about 10 miles from where a woman missing since October was last seen.
The body was found by a land owner around 2 p.m. Friday in a wooded area and was badly decomposed, according to Monroe County Sheriff’s deputies. They believe the body has been there for months.
The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said they would not be able to identify the body for at least 24 to 48 hours. They also say Bruck’s family has been notified that a body was found, though it has not been identified.
The Michigan State Police First District Monroe Post and the Northville State Police Crime Lab is currently assisting the Monroe County Sheriff Department on the scene. MSP confirms that a body was found, but did not provide specifics. The Monroe County Sheriff’s Department is the lead agency in the case.
Police say Bruck was last seen leaving a Halloween party with a man on October 26 at a Monroe County farmhouse eight miles from her house.
She was wearing a costume of the fictional comic villain Poison Ivy with a leaf covered top and a dark purple wig.
Partygoers tell police Chelsea left the party around 3:00 a.m.
Hundreds of people were at that party.
Friends and family have blanketed southeast Michigan with fliers, t-shirts and signs with her picture, helping police with search efforts.
