UPDATE: Police identify homicide victim in Holt

By  | 

HOLT, Mich. (WILX) -- Ingham County Sheriff's Office confirms the Delhi Township homeowner was the homicide victim.

Ammar Alysari's body was found in his home in the 4500 block of Glenberry Drive.

Neighbors say the 35-year-old homeowner and his family were rarely seen, and that they'd only been in the house for about a year.

"I actually used to live a block from that neighborhood so I know it," said Ingham County Sheriff Scott Wriggelsworth. "It's a rarity in that neighborhood or in Delhi Township for that matter. It's pretty quiet neighborhood, so I imagine that neighborhood is fairly shocked."

The sheriff's office isn't releasing much information at this time.

"Sometimes you have to keep things close to your vest to make sure that we can hold accountable who did this," said Ingham County Sheriff Wriggelsworth.

Capt. Harris was one of many officers on the scene.

He says that they spent all night looking for evidence.

"These live long lives, you stay up all night a lot of these cases and there's going to be a lot of people at the sheriff's office that are on this case exclusively," said Wriggelsworth.

Wriggelsworth says time is a factor in the investigation.

"The first 48 hours are very important to ensure the likelihood that you're going to solve this case, and that's where you're going to do a lot of your due diligence and work there."

Police say they expect to release more information, including the cause of death, as early as Tuesday.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Detective Bureau at 517-676-8252.
