GRANITE CITY, Ill. (AP) -- Authorities say a suspected murder victim found in the lake of a southwestern Illinois state park was a 20-year-old Cahokia man.
Illinois State Police say Dakota Jones’ body was found Sunday morning in the water near a boat launch ramp at Horseshoe Lake State Park near Pontoon Beach.
Authorities say Jones died of blunt force trauma, and evidence at the scene indicates the case was a homicide.
Illinois State Police Capt. Jim Morrissey says Jones had been dead less than 24 hours when his body was found.
There was no immediate word Monday about any suspects or charges.
