MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (CBS/AP) The body of missing bank executive, David Widlak, has been found in a swampy area just northeast of Detroit, according to authorities who say dental records have confirmed that the severely decayed body is that of the 62-year-old banker who went missing last month.
The Macomb County medical examiner said Monday the cause and manner of death is undetermined, according to the Detroit Free Press.
An autopsy showed no signs of blunt force trauma and toxicology results are pending.
Widlak, of Grosse Pointe Farms, Mich., was last was seen at the Mount Clemens-based Community Central Bank Corp. administrative offices Sept. 15. His car was in the parking lot when a maintenance worker found the offices in disarray the following morning.
Though the cause of death has yet to be determined and there were no weapons found near the the body, Macomb County Sheriff Mark Hackel said the case is being treated as a homicide.
Ray Colonius, chief financial officer and acting chief executive officer of Community Central Bank, released a statement Monday saying that staff, management and board officials are "deeply saddened" and offer our thoughts, prayers and condolences to Anne and the rest of his family."
Widlak's wife, Anne, said that though the outcome of the search was not what she had hoped for, she is "thankful to know he's been located."
The family plans an independent autopsy.
