HARRISON (WKZO) -- Selfridge Air National Guard Base will be increasing security after the discovery of a man's body on the property Thursday morning.

Colonel Philip Sheridan commander of the Michigan Air National Guard's 127th Wing, which manages the base, said while he can't comment on specifics, he has ordered security to be tightened. The body of an unidentified man was found around 7:30 a.m. and authorities said he had to walk through a swampy area before he jumped a fence on the west side of the base.

The man, who was not a member of the military, is believed to be between 20 and 30-years-old.
