4 in custody after woman found beaten and dumped in Dearborn Heights

Four people are in police custody the day after the badly-beaten body of a woman was discovered on the side of the road in Dearborn Heights. 

Her body was found around 1 a.m. Monday on Powers Avenue, near the intersection of John Daly Road. Authorities believed her body was dumped there. 

The Westland Police Department says later that day a man came to their station and confessed his involvement in dumping the body, and mentioned three other people involved. The man also told police where the incident occurred. 

Authorities confirmed the female victim did, in fact, live at the address the man gave police. Officers then executed a search warrant there and found evidence of an assault. 

Police tracked down the three other people suspected to be involved and brought them into custody, where they are all currently being questioned. 

Police have not yet released the identity of the victim.
