INDIANAPOLIS -- The body of a man was found buried in a shallow grave under concrete inside a warehouse Tuesday on Indianapolis' west side, according to Call 6 sources.

A tip led investigators to the grave just after 7:30 a.m. in the 1200 block of W. 29th Street.

The man has been identified as Michael Marks, 41, by the Marion County Coroner's Office.

The coroner says the cause of death is pending further investigation.

Marks was reported missing on Feb. 25 from 25 S. Lynhurst Drive. He was last seen driving a newer, dark blue BMW with paper plates.

Marks had outstanding warrant for violating his probation on a 2011 forgery charge. He pleaded guilty in August 2015. Marks was sentenced to five years on home detention in August 2017 after violating his probation.

On Feb. 27, two days after he was reported missing, a new notice of probation violation was filed by Marion County Community Corrections. A warrant for his arrest was issued the same day.
