Bloomington - The McLean County
coroner says a man whose torso was found in the Mackinaw River
was a homicide victim.
An autopsy was performed
Monday on the remains. A fisherman found them Saturday morning near the village of Kappa. Coroner Beth Kimmerling says
preliminary findings indicate the man "died from non-natural injuries that
came as a result of another individual's actions." She says the man was
white, middle-aged or older and had signs of cardiac bypass surgery.
The man has not been
identified. The coroner says the death is under investigation by her office,
the McLean County
sheriff, the McLean
County prosecutor and
Illinois State Police.
