MICHIGAN CITY – Police believe a man found shot to death under the 2nd Street Bridge may have taken his own life.

Michigan City Police are conducting a death investigation after 26-year-old Caleb Heflin was found with a gunshot wound to the head under the bridge near the Blue Chip Casino.

The case is still under investigation, but no foul play is suspected, according to Lt. Steve Westphal.

The man was found with a gunshot wound “consistent with being self-inflicted,” he said.

An autopsy and toxicology testing were being conducted by the La Porte County Coroner’s office, but those results were not released as of Tuesday.
