BYRON TOWNSHIP, MI — Family of a retired pastor found shot to death along a busy road say they’re hoping for a breakthrough in the police investigation.

As of now, Kent Count sheriff’s investigators have classified the death of 66-year-old Dale Cross Sr. as only “suspicious” and are awaiting results from forensic tests.

“It’s an expansive investigation with a lot of moving parts,” said Kent County sheriff’s Sgt. Joel Roon.

Cross was found dead from a gunshot wound to the head about 6 p.m. Aug. 6. His body was found next to his GMC Envoy along 68th Street SW east of Burlingame Avenue and police said it appeared as though he was working on the vehicle because a tire jack was underneath the Envoy.

Roon would not disclose whether a weapon was found at the scene.
