After two weeks of extensive searching, the body of 85-year-old Norris Lee has been found in a wooded section of town near Woodward Avenue and Oak Street. Norris went missing on September 3, while attending a 10:30am luncheon at The Community House in downtown Birmingham.
Several resources were put to use during the search for Norris. Nearby Quarton Lake was searched with underwater cameras, vacant buildings were carefully searched, the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department Aviation Unit was used and many types of advanced technology were put into action. Although police were called in to process the scene, no foul play is suspected. It is believed that Norris died of natural causes.
