Widlak, 62, of Grosse Pointe Farms walked out of the Mt. Clemens bank Sept. 19. His office was found in disarray the next morning. Duck hunters found his decomposing body in Lake St. Clair nearly four weeks later.
An autopsy by Macomb County Medical Examiner Dr. Daniel Spitz found no blunt force trauma. A second, independent autopsy commissioned by the family and performed by Oakland County Medical Examiner Dr. L.J. Dragovic found a gunshot wound to the back of Widlak’s neck. Macomb County Sheriff’s divers then found Widlak’s missing .38-caliber handgun in the lake.
It is unknown if the gun is the one that was used in the shooting. State Police are analyzing the gun and bullet and bullet fragments found in Widlak’s body.
The Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death as a homicide, but suicide has not been ruled out.
Plante & Moran, PLLC conducted the independent audit of the bank.
According to the release, the bank entered into a consent order with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Michigan Office of Financial and Insurance Regulation. The consent order is effective Nov. 1.
Customer deposits remain fully insured.
The bank has agreed to increase board oversight and conduct an independent study of management; improve regulatory capital ratios; charge-off certain classified assets; reduce its level of loan delinquencies and problem assets; limit lending to certain borrowers; revise lending and collection policies; adopt and implement new profit, strategic and liquidity plans, and correct loan underwriting and credit administration deficiencies.
