(CONSTANTINE TOWNSHIP) – Michigan State Police are asking for the public's help in their continued investigation into a 2015 murder.

On the evening of September 1, 2015, troopers from the White Pigeon Detachment were called to 13110 Riverside Drive in Constantine Township after family members arrived at the house and found the body of Lavern Chupp. Detective Sergeant Todd Peterson says it's believed the crime happened sometime between the evening hours on August 31, 2015 and the early morning hours of September 1, 2015.

Peterson says that Chupp's residence could not be seen from the road. However his long, shared driveway was surrounded by his rental properties and visible to most of those dwellings.

No motive for the murder has even been shared by authorities.

Chupp was a well known figure in the community. He owned Chupp Construction and numerous rental properties in and around the area as well.

If anyone has information they think may be helpful in this investigation, they are asked to call the State Police Post in Marshall at 269-558-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 574-288-STOP.
