Police say a decomposing body has been found during a routine check of a sewer system in Lansing.
Lansing police spokesman Bob Merritt says the body was removed from under a manhole cover Tuesday.
At 2:00 p.m., police tweeted out to the public to avoid Herbert and Wilson Street as crews tried to remove the body.
The discovery was made by a public works crew during a check of a sewer system.
Merritt says the gender is undetermined because of the decomposition.
An autopsy will be performed.
