CASNOVIA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A man was found dead inside a home west of Casnovia Monday.

It happened along Scenic Drive off Shaw Road, north of Apple Avenue, in Casnovia Township.

The owner of the property, who is not living there, said she found the 40-year-old man dead in a room with a propane heater. She started CPR until emergency responders arrived.

She said the house was under construction and had no heat or electricity. She knows the man, but wasn’t expecting him to be at the house.

The man has no family in the area, the property owner said, but she was able to reach his brother.

The Muskegon County Sheriff’s Office is handling the case, but didn’t release any information Monday night.

**Correction: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated the man was found dead Tuesday. He was actually found dead Monday. We regret the error, which has been fixed.
