- Police have arrested a person of interest in the murder of a Detroit firefighter in December.

David Madigral was found dead inside his home on Vaughan by his son on Monday, Dec. 21. The medical examiner said Madrigal had died from blunt force trauma to his head.

Family said he lived in the house on Vaughan for ten years and planned to move once he retired. The 59-year-old man won't get that chance after being killed.
