CANTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) – Police on Monday found the body of a man sought in a fatal weekend shooting at a motel.

A maid found the body of Jessica Smith, 23, of Canton, Sunday afternoon at a Days Inn motel, police told The Detroit News for a story yesterday.

Police began looking for a man who, according to motel records, checked into the room Saturday.

A description of the man’s vehicle was carried on local TV and radio broadcasts. Police received a tip that the vehicle was parked in a remote area of Washtenaw County’s Lima Township, 20 miles west of the motel, said Detective Todd Mutchler of the Canton Township police.

Township and state police searched the area and found the man’s body, Mutchler said.

The name of the man, who apparently died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, was withheld.

The Ann Arbor News reported that Smith was a University student.
