The Kalamazoo Gazette and the Battle Creek Enquirer reported authorities announced Monday that the body found in Kalamazoo County’s Brady Township was that of 33-year-old Michael VanBuskirk of Battle Creek.

Harold Ordway faces a weapons charge after authorities said they found a gun following the minor Sept. 2 accident near Plainwell.

Authorities were investigating the 41-year-old’s possible involvement in the disappearance of VanBuskirk and 53-year-old Paul Atchley, who also had lived with Ordway and hasn’t been seen since August 2011.

Defense lawyer Thomas Clement said in an e-mail this morning that no other charges are pending.
