UPDATE: Body discovered behind Ojibwa Casino, suspect arrested

UPDATE — A suspect has been arrested in connection with a body that was discovered behind Ojibwa Casino.

Federal authorities arrested Hunter Allen Loos of Marquette, and a federal complaint has been filed, seeking to charge him with murder.

Several law enforcements were dispatched to a two track south of the Keweenaw Bay Indian Reservation, for female human remains on fire.

A white van was discovered at the victim’s home, matching the vehicle captured on surveillance footage near the scene of the crime. When authorities approached the home, Loos answered the door.

Loos stated in a later interview that he had stabbed the victim in the back, after the victim allegedly hit Loos with a coffee pot. Loos stabbed the victim several more times, and she later died on the couch in the home. Loos said he put the victim in a blanket and into his white van, where he drove to the two track. Loos doused the victim in gasoline, and attempted to cremate the body.

The victim was reportedly a member of the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community, but Loos is not. A detention hearing for Loos is set for November 5th.
