MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (WXYZ) - The Macomb County Medical Examiner was on the hot seat today based on his failure to find the bullet that killed Macomb County Banker David Widlak.

Today ten members of the Board of Commissioners grilled Daniel Spitz over his failure to locate the bullet that killed Widlak. Spitz had said in his autopsy report that there was no blunt force trauma to the body and that his death was inconclusive.

A second autopsy requested by the family found that Widlak had been shot in the back of the neck execution style.

Spitz will be back for more questioning.
