Man found dead along the Hennepin Canal

Posted by wlpo on November 23, 2011

Foul play isn’t suspected in the death of a man found along the Hennepin Canal.  Police say an Illinois Department of Natural Resources employee found the body Tuesday afternoon west of the Interstate 180 bridge in Bureau County.

The 48 year old was pronounced dead shortly later from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.  The Bureau County Corner’s office was waiting to give out his name.
