—Cook County Sheriff Thomas J. Dart announced the late afternoon recovery of a young boy’s body in the Des Plaines River near McCormick Woods at the intersection of First Avenue and 31st Street.
An autopsy will be performed tomorrow (Wednesday) by a Cook County Medical Examiner to identify the boy and determine the cause of death.
