Suddenly there was a possible break in the case the other day that could just affect either of the two cases. A badly decomposed body was found of a woman in the DesPlaines River, near Channahan, IL. The significance of this location is that it was a location that had been an area of earlier searches for both Stacy Peterson and Lisa Stebic.
Police discovered the body near the Big Basin Marina, near I55. CSI recovery teams and State Police detectives have set up command on the riverbank and remain there this evening.
DNA testing is being done on the partial skeletal remains, which consisted of a rib cage, spinal column, and partial left and right femur bones, according to Will County Coroner Patrick O’Neil, who said results likely won’t be known for two weeks. But sources close to the investigation said the results could be returned as early as next week.A preliminary autopsy performed Thursday could not determine whether the body was that of a man or woman, its race, or identity. The remains included shreds of jeans containing a small amount of money, and the person had been dead for several months or more. The coroner’s office said it was unclear how the body parts were severed.
