Body found near the Lee-Bureau County line identified as Dunlap man

Posted by wlpo on June 9, 2016

The body of a Dunlap man was found Wednesday morning north of Ohio just west of Route 26.

Deputies from Lee County were called just after 10:30 about a pickup truck that was parked in the middle of a county road. There was nobody in or around the truck.

Eventually officers saw a path in some nearby weeds leading down to a water-filled ditch. Fifty-four year old Carl Whalen was found dead at the scene. Police are still looking into the cause of Whalen’s death, but foul play isn’t suspected.
