JOLIET TOWNSHIP — The body of a woman was discovered Thursday afternoon in the Des Plaines River, police said.
Illinois State Police Capt. Cindy Benson said the body was found in the water near Brandon Road.
“It is the body of a white female who appears to have died very recently,” Benson said.
Investigators will wait for the Will County coroner’s office to conduct an autopsy before determining whether her death was a result of foul play, Benson said.
“We are currently checking all recent missing persons reports,” Benson said Thursday afternoon.
