Times-Herald Newspapers

DEARBORN — A Detroit woman missing since Jan. 1 was found dead Feb. 5 in an abandoned house on the corner of Log Cabin Street and the Lodge Freeway in Detroit, a Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office spokesperson said.

According to a published report, Dynasty Myles, 23, was found naked and frozen by city of Detroit workers who were salting a bridge near the abandoned house on Feb. 5.

Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office Spokeswoman Sarah Bazzi said Myles’ family identified her body shortly after her death and autopsy results are still pending as of Feb. 8.

Myles had been missing since about 10 p.m. New Year’s Day and was last seen on a Benihana surveillance video, in the restaurant parking lot, 18601 Hubbard Drive, near Fairlane Town Center. She reportedly placed an order of food at the restaurant but never picked it up.

Myles was seen on the surveillance video getting into a 2013 Dodge Durango, or a similar vehicle. During a press conference Jan. 31, police declined to say if she was the driver or passenger.

Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Hadadd did not return calls seeking comment by press time.

Homicide detectives from Detroit and Dearborn are investigating.

Anyone with information related to Myles’ disappearance is asked to contact Dearborn police. Anonymous callers may leave a tip at 313-943-3012 or call with any information at 313-943-2241 or go to www.speakup.org.
