Two arrested in connection with former student’s death

Marquette City Police Department officials have arrested two Marquette men in connection with the death of 22-year-old Marquette native Kyle Dowling, according to a press release.

Jordan Beaudry, 19, and Christopher Garrow, 17, were arrested on Friday, Oct. 25 on felony and misdemeanor charges for one count of failing to report the discovery of a dead body and on a second count of concealing the death of an individual.

The arrests followed several weeks of investigation into Dowling’s death by the Marquette Police Department.

The investigation into Dowling’s death revealed that the two aforementioned individuals were with Dowling on the night of his death.

It is alleged that both suspects failed to request assistance for a medically-distressed Dowling, and subsequently failed to report his death to authorities.

Dowling was found unconscious on his front porch on the morning of Tuesday, Oct. 1. He was last seen alive on Monday, Sept. 30. Marquette Police Department officials did not suspect foul play in the death.

Dowling was a former machine and drafting major at NMU, and a 2009 graduate of Marquette Senior High School.

Officials are still awaiting the results of Dowling’s toxicology report, as the Marquette Police Department’s investigation continues.
