Body parts discovered in central Illinois

SECOR, Ill. (AP) — Authorities say parts of a human body found in a rural Secor home may be related to a torso found last week in the Mackinaw River.

Authorities say the body parts may be the remains of a 74-year-old man whose family reported missing.

Fishermen found the partially submerged torso on Saturday beneath a bridge, just south of Kappa. McLean County Coroner Beth Kimmerling said an autopsy Monday confirmed the death was a homicide.

The other remains were found Tuesday.  The nature of the remains weren’t revealed. The Pantagraph in Bloomington reports ( Kimmerling said DNA tests will determine if those remains are related to the torso.

Authorities say they won’t disclose how long the elderly man has been missing or how long the remains had been where they were found.
