State Police: Remains in Des Plaines River not Stacy Peterson or Lisa Stebic

May 27, 2009
CHANNAHON -- Skeletal remains found last Wednesday along the Des Plaines are that of an unidentified man, Illinois State Police announced Wednesday...
The remains, discovered on May 20, were sent to the ISP Forensic Crime Lab for DNA analysis and it has been determined they are that of an unidentified male, according to an ISP release.
"An investigation to identify the remains is underway," the release said.
The office of Coroner Patrick O'Neil originally reported, "The partial skeletal remains consisted of a rib cage, spinal column and partial left and right femur bones. The head, arms and below the knee extremities were disarticulated." O'Neil said the search continues for the missing remains.
Also, a forensic investigation continues as to whether the disarticulation is a result of a postmortem (after death) artifact or antemortem injury. The coroner's office, he said, was given a conservative time frame in receiving forensic DNA and forensic anthropology results of approximately two weeks.
A preliminary estimation of how long the unidentified person has been deceased is approximately several months or more, O'Neil said in a statement. Other items that were discovered include shreds of blue jeans that contained a small amount of U. S. currency.

Police continued to search the Des Plaines River where the human remains were discovered in Channahon Township.
