Family of murdered truck driver not pleased with police investigation

Posted: Updated:

Detroit Police are continuing their investigation into who shot and killed 31-year-old Michael Boeglin of Ferdinand.

Boeglin's semi-truck cab was found burned out in Detroit and his family is desperate for answers. 

Boeglin's family is not pleased with the pace at which the Detroit Police Department is investigating.

They say they have even presented the police with potential evidence in the case but that nothing has yet been done.

Boeglin's father-in-law David Clark says his daughter, and Mike's wife, Ashley called Mike's phone to see if it still worked.

Clark says the phone rang a few times and went to Mike's voicemail indicating the phone was still active somewhere.

He says Ashley was then able to locate the phone about 40 to 50 yards away from the crime scene using GPS.

Clark says they called the Detroit Police Department to let them know what they found.

Clark says the officer he spoke to told them they couldn't get to it because they were understaffed and it was raining at the time.

"I mean, I know that they're understaffed, that Detroit has got all kinds of difficulties financially," says Clark. "But this is my son. This is my daughter's husband. This is my unborn grandchild's father. And of course, we want answers just like everybody else."

Clark says he has spoken to the medical examiner in this case.

According to Clark the medical examiner says the suspect, or suspects, walked up to the driver-side window and shot Mike in the head.

The medical examiner also says robbery was the motive and that the fire was set in an attempt to cover up the crime.
