Byron Center pastor's 2018 death ruled a suicide

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The death of a pastor whose body was found alongside a Byron Township road last year has been ruled a suicide, authorities say.

After scrutinizing the timeline surrounding the death of Dale Cross Sr., 66, investigators decided no one else could have been involved, the Kent County Sheriff's Department said Wednesday. Authorities say physical evidence and witness statements also support the ruling.

In August 2018, Cross' body was found next to his SUV along 68th Street between Burlingame and Clyde Park avenues. He died of a gunshot wound to the head.
