Police find body of Detroit man in pond


PETERSBURG, Mich. — The body of a 53-year-old Detroit man was recovered about 9:15 Friday night from the pond of the Monroe/Toledo North KOA in Monroe County’s Summerfield Township, hours after he went missing at the campground, sheriff’s deputies said.

The man was identified as Tyronne Glenn Hadley.

Deputies said Mr. Hadley and family members arrived at KOA about 3:30 p.m. He went in the water immediately and was not seen again.

After several minutes, family members asked for help from campground staff. Later, the search was joined by the sheriff’s dive team, a helicopter, and the Summerfield Township fire department.

Mr. Hadley’s body was found in 11 feet of water. Family members told authorities that he could swim, but hadn’t in several years, Sgt. Geoff Kovenich of the sheriff’s office said.

On July 2, a 39-year-old Toledo man was pulled from 12 feet of water in the pond. He was taken to Flower Hospital in Sylvania, where he was pronounced dead.
