PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Michigan State Police have identified the body found near a carpool lot in Kent County.

Based on dental records, authorities have identified the body discovered on Sept. 14 in the woods near the carpool lot located on Post Drive off from US-131 in Plainfield Township as 59-year-old Anna Marie Schelling, of Grand Rapids and Midland, Texas.

Detectives have ruled her death a suicide.

Authorities say Schelling’s vehicle was in the car pool lot and her personal belongings were found near her body, but dental records were needed to confirm her identification due to the extent of decomposition. A source familiar to the investigation told 24 Hour News 8 that her body may have been there for a week or two.
