UPDATE: Charges authorized in murder case

TRAVERSE CITY — A local man will be charged with murder after authorities said he killed his neighbor.

Dallas David Walker, 23, of Traverse City, is set to be arraigned on an open murder charge after his father told Grand Traverse County Sheriff’s deputies his son killed a man who lived across the street. Undersheriff Nate Alger said deputies found Christopher Allan Kleehammer, 48, dead inside his mobile home Wednesday.

A preliminary investigation — that continued Thursday — showed Walker visited Kleehammer’s home on David Place sometime after 2 a.m. on Sept. 20. Walker “made comments” to his father that led him to check on Kleehammer. Walker’s father called 911 when he realized Kleehammer was dead, authorities said.

Kleehammer had “obvious signs of blunt force trauma to the head,” according to a release from the sheriff’s department. Authorities noted his body was transported to Kalamazoo for an autopsy to determine the cause and

UPDATE: Death rattles King’s Court

TRAVERSE CITY — Investigators will request an open murder charge against a Traverse City man after authorities found his neighbor dead at King’s Court. But details remained scarce more than a dozen after deputies arrived on scene.

Neighbors early Wednesday awoke to flashing police lights as a team from the Michigan State Police converged on a trailer along David Place. Grand Traverse County Undersheriff Nate Alger said a daylong investigation resulted in a request for a murder charge against a 23-year-old man.

Few additional details were released from his department as the probe continued into the evening.

Neighbors closest to the scene said deputies told them it was a homicide. Alger — who declined to answer several questions Wednesday — said they were simply investigating a death before announcing the request for an open murder charge on Facebook hours later.

“The officers noticed there were obvious injuries but not the type or extent,” Alger

UPDATE: MSP investigators on scene of death

TRAVERSE CITY — Authorities are trying to piece together events that left a man dead in a Garfield Township home.

Grand Traverse County Undersheriff Nate Alger said deputies responded to King’s Court early Wednesday morning after a caller indicated there was an unresponsive man at a trailer on David Place. They entered, found who they believe to be a 48-year-old man dead with “obvious injuries,” he said.

Alger said deputies requested a Michigan State Police crime scene investigation because of witness statements about how the death occurred and the “nature” of the man’s body. He declined to elaborate on the extent of the injuries and said the man has yet to be identified because of the “positioning” of his body.

“The officers noticed there was obvious injuries but not the type or extent,” Alger added.

A 23-year-old Traverse City man — who deputies believe was at the man’s home on Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning
