Police say 19-year-old Dustyn Louis Frolka was in "respiratory distress" when they arrived on the scene.

Frolka's body was partially clothed. It was reported at 10:23 p.m.

A passing motorist, who happened to be a nurse, stopped to give first aid until EMS arrived. Frolka was taken to a Lansing hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Bath Township police say they're treating Frolka's death as a homicide until detectives learn otherwise.
