COVERT TOWNSHIP (WKZO) -- One mystery has given way to another in the death of a Covert man. They have now verified and corrected the identity of the man, who was found dead, in an advanced state of decomposition in a drainage ditch in a blueberry field off 72nd St. in Van Buren County. He was initially identified as Ivory Shaver Jr. of Covert.
They have now used fingerprints to verify his I.D. and say its Ivory Shaver the 3rd. A family member recognized a broadcast description of his tattoo. The fingerprints make it official. A task force will form on Monday to go over tips and other information. Toxicology test results are still a few weeks away.
