Authorities in suburban Detroit say divers found the identification of a 30-year-old man missing for a decade after recovering a headless, handless body inside of a submerged car.
The Downriver Search and Recovery Team found the ID belonging to Thomas Lange of Allen Park. The team recovered the body and vehicle Thursday in the Detroit River near BASF Waterfront Park in Wyandotte after a recreational diver notified police.
Wyandotte police say the vehicle was registered to Lange's mother and the clothing was similar to what Lange was last seen wearing. Divers returned to the area Friday and recovered more body parts, including a skull.
The Wayne County medical examiner's office is performing an autopsy to identify the remains and determine a cause of death.
