(Scroll down for video) A person who checked out a home before a potential purchase, found a dead body in the garage, according to police in Michigan.

Detroit police said that the incident unfolded on Thursday around 1:00 p.m., when the potential home buyer was looking at the house located in the 19900 block of Spencer.

The occupants of the house, who have been living there for years, said that the homeowner did not allow them to go into the garage.

The homeowner will be questioning about the body that was found inside a 1990 Plymouth Acclaim. Investigators believe that the body was in the garage for many years as it is mummified.

The home buyer went into the garage, and decided to open the door of the car. That is when the home buyer was shocked to see the dead body in the back seat of the car.
