Marine City Police responded to a call from the 1300 block of South Water Street at about 9:30 a.m.  Monday, March 4.  Police say the waterfront property located on the Belle River is commonly known as Catholic Point.  Officials were called to the scene as a neighbor noticed tire tracks leading down to the river, along with a three to four foot snow pile that was significantly lower that the surrounding area.  Divers with the St. Clair County Dive Team first located and recovered the body of a 58-year-old Hazel Park man in the water nearby and he was declared deceased at the scene.  A sports utility vehicle was pulled from the water and towed out of the waterway.  The Marine City Fire Department and  St. Clair County Sheriff Dive Team assisted at the scene.  The deceased’s name is being withheld until all family members have been notified.
