(MISHAWAKA)(AP) - Police say a 65-year-old Mishawaka man who made his own fireworks and frequently set off explosions on his 5-acre property apparently used a homemade explosive device to kill himself.

St. Joseph County police Sgt. Matt Blank says a brother of Stanley Warren called police Wednesday asking police to check on him. The brother told police Warren had been depressed and his family hadn't heard from him in several days.

Warren's body was found behind his garage.

Blank says police aren't sure when Warren died because of conflicting reports from neighbors about when they last heard an explosion. Blank says evidence indicates the death was a suicide, not an accident, but he declined to elaborate.

He says the bomb squad found additional explosives on the property.
