Body Part Found Near Starved Rock

Posted by wlpo on April 11, 2011

Conservation Police and members of Peru and Ottawa River Rescue Squad’s are searching the Illinois River today for a body.

Conservation Sgt. Robert Frazier says people fishing across the river from the Starved Rock boat ramp yesterday afternoon noticed a body part floating up to shore.  Frazier won’t say what body part it was but said it wasn’t badly decomposed.

Frazier says they don’t know yet if the body part could belong to 43 year old Susan Schultz of Marseilles.  She was reported missing on March 23.

The search for Schultz has focused in and around the Illinois River.  Today searches are focusing on the stretch of river from Starved Rock west to Hennepin.
