Lake County Authorities Investigating Two Bodies Found in Lake Michigan

(Waukegan, IL) Lake County Sheriff’s officials are looking into two bodies that were pulled from Lake Michigan. On Sunday afternoon around 3 o’clock, the body of a woman was located by a fisherman that called in Coast Guard officials about three miles southeast of the Waukegan Harbor. About an hour and a half later, a Coast Guard helicopter discovered the body of a male, about 3 miles off the Lake Forest shoreline. The woman was described as a fully dressed African-American between 18-40, about 5’4”, 150-170 pounds… and was likely in the water for less than two weeks. The male may be a missing person who went missing in Chicago back on August 8. No identities have been released, and an investigation into both bodies is ongoing.
