The additional evidence was found Saturday afternoon. State police would not confirm what was found Saturday or if the items were related to the remains found earlier. According to media sources, the evidence found might have been a leg bone.
Chemical plant worker Jeff Triplett says he escorted state police and two workers from the Will County Coroner’s office through a brush and back into the woods along the bank of the Des Plaines River…
Tera Williams: What did they find…
Jeff Triplett: They found a human leg bone… they said they found it on the side of the river…
They had their forensics kit and they all had their laptops and they were bagging it up.
It is being highly speculated that the remains found earlier this week in the Des Plaines River might be those of either missing Stacy Peterson or Lisa Stebic. Both of whom went missing in 2007. Although there are others that have gone missing with less media attention that are not so high-profile in the area as well. 26 year old Bradley Olsen and 45 year old John Spira have also both been missing since 2007.
Bradley Olsen, 26, of Maple Park and John Spira, 45, of St. Charles each has been missing since 2007. Susan Olsen, Bradley Olsen’s mother, hopes when the remains are identified, “one of our … families will have closure.”
Her son was last seen about 2 a.m. Jan. 20, 2007, at Bar One in DeKalb. DeKalb police have said he arrived at the bar with some friends late Jan. 19.
“My thoughts and prayers are with all the families,” Susan Olsen said. “It’s unfortunate we have to go through more grueling waiting.”
Spira, 45, last was seen Feb. 23, 2007, at Universal Cable Construction near West Chicago, which Spira co-owned. A fire in September 2007 totaled the business.
