Missing Canadian man's body found in Michigan landfill

The body of a man reported missing in Canada has been found in a Michigan landfill. 

Kevin Joseph Arendt, 38, of Mississauga, Ontario, near Toronto, was last seen leaving a local bar around 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday, according to a press release issued Monday by Canadian police. 

His body was discovered Friday by workers in a Flint-area landfill, it said.


Constable George Tudos of the Peel Regional Police Department in Ontario told msnbc.com on Tuesday that investigators are working with Michigan law enforcement to try and determine how Arendt ended up in the landfill.

Tudos said investigators don't know if Arendt was intoxicated when he left the bar. An autopsy was inconclusive, but uncovered no evidence of foul play, he said.

"How he got there is something we're looking into because it's not that common, " he said.

Dan Gudgel, district manager of the Brent Run landfill, told the Flint Journal that between 60 percent and 80 percent of the refuse that ends up in the landfill originates in Canada, mostly from the Toronto area.

Investigators have talked to witnesses at the bar, but haven't released any details about they've found.
