Death of Michigan student investigated as homicide

Police in Ann Arbor say they are investigating the death of a 25-year-old University of Michigan medical student as a homicide.

Paul DeWolf was found dead in his apartment Wednesday. A police investigation began around noon, and university police released a crime alert just before 11 p.m.

Police say DeWolf failed to arrive for a scheduled assignment at the Veteran's Affairs Hospital. The hospital sent a colleague to the home to check on him, and that person discovered DeWolf had died.

An autopsy was performed Thursday.

Ann Arbor police haven't released a cause of death. Lt. Detective Robert Pfannes says more information will be released Friday.

DeWolf was a 2010 graduate of Grand Valley State University and is from Schoolcraft. He was to graduate from the medical school next spring.
