CASEY (JG-TC) — Police are investigating a body that was found mid-day Friday near the westbound entrance ramp to Interstate 70 in Casey.

A Casey Police Department press release reported that employees of the Illinois Department of Transportation discovered the body at this ramp at approximately 12:45 p.m. Friday.

The press release reported that this is outside of the jurisdiction of the Casey Police Department, so the matter was turned over to the Clark County Sheriffs Office, Illinois State Police Zone 7 Investigations, and Illinois State Police Crime Scene Services. The Illinois State Police had not released any information on this investigation as of Friday evening.
