Decomposed body found along Des Plaines River: 'It could be Lisa, it could be Stacy'

Source: Chicago Sun-Times

A cleanup crew working along the Des Plaines River discovered a decayed body near Channahon, but police late Wednesday couldn't determine if the remains might be those of Stacy Peterson or Lisa Stebic.

"They're unidentified human remains," said State Police Master Sgt. Tom Burek, after the body, found on the riverbank, was transferred to a Will County coroner's van.

It appeared to be that of a woman, a law enforcement source said.

An autopsy will be done today, but a source said further forensic tests likely will be necessary to determine the identity of the body.

Relatives of Peterson and Stebic, who vanished in 2007, said they don't expect to immediately learn the identity of the body.

A blue barrel was seen on the riverbank three days before the remains washed.


A witness has said he helped Drew Peterson carry a heavy blue barrel, which he thinks contained Stacy Peterson, hours before she was reported missing.
