Autopsy completed on human remains found in Wayne County

WAYNE COUNTY — An autopsy has been completed on human remains found at a remote site in Wayne County last month and they’ve now been moved to FBI headquarters in Quantico, Virginia.

The body was removed from the site by forensic specialists with the FBI and Illinois State Police and transferred to Bloomington, where an autopsy was completed late last week.

State and local authorities, along with FBI and State Police investigators attended the autopsy.

The results of the post-mortem examination have not been made public, but the remains are now being transferred to an FBI Identification facility in Quantico, Virginia for examination by a forensic anthropologist.
