FBI, family asking public for information about hunter’s 2018 death
Yang was shot and killed while hunting at the Rose Lake State Game Area.
LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - The family of Chong Moua Yang, the Bath Township Police Department, and FBI Detroit are asking the public to come forward with any information they may have about the person or persons responsible for Yang’s death.
They held a briefing at 10 a.m. Tuesday, the three-year anniversary of Yang’s death, at the state game area where he died.
On Nov. 16, 2018, 68-year-old Yang of Lansing was pronounced dead at the scene after he was found after 10 p.m. in the area north of East Clark Road and east of Upton Road. Yang had left his home between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m.
His shotgun and backpack were missing from the scene. Police still have not found Yang’s shotgun, backpack, and traditional Hmong hunting knife, similar to the one pictured below.
Yang’s family is hoping the knife will help lead to some tips.
Police originally suspected Yang died of a heart attack, before finding a gunshot wound. He was hunting in the Rose Lake game area, wearing hunter’s orange clothing.
If you have information on the person(s) responsible for Chong’s homicide, please contact the Bath Township Police Department at (517) 641-6271 or the FBI Detroit office at (313) 965-2323.
