CONTINUING COVERAGE: Police Continue Investigation Into Emmet County Murder

Posted: Updated:

The investigation into an Emmet County murder continues tonight, a week after Lyle Kopenkoskey's body turned up in a ditch.

The Emmet County Sheriff's Office is still searching for a suspect, and they're hoping the public can help out.

Kopenkoskey's family began looking for him last Tuesday in Resort Township, when they learned he never showed up for work.

They found his unoccupied pick-up truck along Kiebel Road, and investigators found his body nearby.

The Sheriff's Office immediately labeled Kopenkoskey's death as suspicious.

But when an autopsy confirmed someone had shot him, they shifted gears toward a homicide investigation.

The Sheriff says at this point, they don't have any suspects.
