ANN ARBOR, Mich. (WJBK) -

Just hours after releasing a photo of a man they say may have information related to the murder of a University of Michigan medical student, Ann Arbor police say that potential witness has come forward.

Investigators say the man is not considered a suspect in the death of 25-year-old Paul DeWolf.

Det. Lt. Robert Pfannes says the man voluntarily went to the police department Thursday after his photo from a security camera was released to the public. Police had been trying to learn his identity.

Pfannes says the photo was taken "in the area" of DeWolf's home. He won't elaborate.

DeWolf's body was discovered on July 24 in a home where he lived with other medical students. Police consider the death a homicide. An autopsy showed he was killed by a single gunshot wound.

His apartment was orderly and nothing of value appeared to be stolen.

Anyone with information on the case is encouraged to call the Ann Arbor Police anonymous tip line at 734-794-6939 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK UP (773-2587).

    Pensioners approve Detroit bankruptcy plan

    The city of Detroit says workers and retirees have approved pension cuts, a crucial step to emerging from the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. The city reported results Monday after two months of balloting ended July 11. A judge still must hold a trial to determine if Detroit's overall bankruptcy plan is fair and feasible, but support from retirees is vital.
