Joliet authorities discover probable human remains along the Des Plaines River – NBC Chicago

Authorities say possible human remains have been found along the banks of the Des Plaines River in the suburb of Joliet and an investigation is underway to identify the body.

Authorities say officers were called to Zenith Energy’s terminals, located in the 1000 block of West Laraway Road, after workers discovered skeletal remains on the south side of the river.

Officers determined that the remains were “in an advanced state of decomposition” and that evidence found at the scene suggests they “are of human origin”.

The Will County Coroner’s Office was called to the scene and asked to collect the remains for processing and testing.

If anyone has any information related to the incident, please call 815-724-3020, or Will County Crime Stoppers at 800-323-6734.
