BATH TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WLNS) - Bath Township, Clinton County and state police are trying to figure out how a 19 year-old MSU student died over the weekend.

6 News Reporter Nick Perreault spoke with police who say they have some leads, but are still looking for answers.

More than 48 hours later Bath Twp. police are still trying to put the pieces together as to how 19-year-old Dustyn Frolka died.

"We're not sure at this point how he got there and the time that he was found, he was partially clothed," said Sgt. Gary Smith, Bath Twp. police.

Bath Detective Sergeant Gary Smith says paramedics found Frolka, an MSU sophomore from Owosso, partially clothed along the I-69 westbound ramp, just before 10:30 p.m. Saturday.

The sergeant says Dustyn did have marks across his body believed to be from the road.

At this point, they don't believe alcohol played a factor but are awaiting toxicology reports for more information.

Police do however have some promising leads.

"We've used a lot of technology in this case to pinpoint his exact locations, we know where his location was within minutes of where he was found, so we're working back from that," Sgt. Smith said.

Sergeant Smith says the latest piece of information comes in the way of surveillance video from businesses along Saginaw. He hopes they can use that to find more specifics on where Dustyn was going and how he ended up on I-69.

"If someone was in the area and saw anything suspicious, I'd encourage them to give me a call."

Michigan State University released a statement on the passing of Dustyn Frolka.

A benefit concert has been scheduled for April 25 in Owosso at The Hickory Lounge.
