4 Dead at Country Music Festival in Michigan

Four people died Saturday at a country music festival in Michigan in what appear to be two unrelated incidents, WOOD-TV reports.

The deaths occurred at the Faster Horses Festival at the Michigan International Speedway, which is about 80 miles southwest of Detroit.

Around 7:30 a.m. Saturday, a woman was found dead. Police have not released any details about how the woman died or where she was found, but authorities identified her as 30-year-old Melissa Donna Havens of Croswell, Michigan, according to the Detroit News.

The Michigan State Police said in a tweet that there is no ongoing threat to festival attendees. However, investigators are searching for a man who was seen with Havens before she died.

That man is described as a Black male with short black hair and a short beard. He was last seen wearing a gray hoodie and may be in his 30s.

To report information about Havens’ death, call Detective Sergeant Daniel Drewyor at 734-819-8192.

The second incident on Saturday left three people dead. Emergency crews were called around 1:30 p.m. for a report that five people were unresponsive at a campground near the festival.

Authorities located five men in a trailer who were all unresponsive and medics began performing CPR, according to WDIV-TV.

Three of the men were pronounced dead at the trailer, while the remaining two individuals were hospitalized for acute carbon monoxide poisoning and were in critical condition.

All five of the men were in their early 20s. A friend of the men called 911 after not hearing from them, WDIV-TV reports.

Investigators believe a generator near the trailer caused the carbon monoxide poisoning.

Generators and exhaust fumes from vehicles should be kept at a distance from camping areas, according to a press release from the Lenawee County Sheriff’s Office.
