Father Learns of His Sons Death on Facebook.

Detroit Police are investigating the death of a man whose body was found in the trunk of a car on the city's east side Monday morning.
DPD Officer Shanelle Williams said police responded to Fairmount and Hickory, close to 8 Mile Road, after receiving a 911 call that a body had been seen in the vehicle. When police arrived, they saw the man's arm hanging from the trunk of a white, Buick Century and, when they opened it, found the body inside.
According to the Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office, the body has been identified as 39-year-old Jeffery Hagler.

Hagler died of multiple gunshot wounds and his death was ruled a homicide.
News of the body being found in the trunk quickly spread across social media Monday morning. Initially, several Facebook users believed the body in the car was some sort of prank. One Facebook user posted a video showing the car getting towed away and police investigating at the scene. The video has garnered more than 105,000 views.
Others posted photos of the man's arm hanging out of the car,  claiming that police didn't respond to the scene immediately. But Williams said officers were dispatched at 10:32 a.m. and arrived on the scene at 10:40 a.m., within eight minutes of receiving the call.
Jeff Davis narrates how he knew his son was dead .
The last time Jeff Davis saw his son alive was on Father’s Day. The next time Davis saw anything of his son, 39-year-old Jeff Hagler, it was in a photo that was going viral on Facebook and was initially thought to be a prank.
Unfortunately, it was a photo that no parent ever wants to see – a white Buick Century that had been abandoned in an alley on the east side of Detroit, with a man’s arm hanging out of the trunk. That man was his son. Hagler had reportedly been beaten and then shot three times before being stuffed into the abandoned vehicle and left for dead. Hagler’s body was discovered less than 12 hours after he’d left his father.
According to his family, Hagler had had some run-ins with the law in his 20s, even serving time for drugs, but he had finally rebuilt his life and all appeared to be going well. Hagler had three children and was working for an auto parts supplier. Police have spoken to the man who held the registration on the car. While that man did know Hagler, Davis doesn’t believe he’s connected to the murder. Hagler’s family reportedly believes that his death was the result of a random robbery. Police are investigating this crime, which is currently described only as a homicide, but there may be more to it that they are keeping close to the vest.
