If they were so stupid that they didn't move far enough away, who is at fault? The law has been in place for DECADES. How dumb do you have to be to spend tens of thousands of dollars if not hundreds of thousands of dollars without knowing ALL the pros and cons, risks and responsibilities attaching to that purchase?

I haven't heard much from Pee Wee Durbin lately. Surprised he hasn't been out trumping the "we are not at war with radical Islam" spin.

Body found behind Oak Street Mall

10 months ago by Denise Donley

Remains appear to have been there for "quite some time"

The Quincy Police Department report a Missouri photo ID was found Wednesday night at the scene where human remains were discovered.

Adams County Coroner Jim Keller said the remains will undergo an autopsy in Bloomington, IL on Friday.

Keller also said his top priority is releasing the remains back to the person's family as soon as possible, but is not sure when that might happen.

The remains will stay in custody of the coroner's office until then.

Officials believe the remains may have gone undiscovered for several months.

As a result, Keller said DNA testing may take longer in this case, but the time frame for making an identification varies with each case.

 

Previous story:

A body was found behind the Oak Street Mall in Quincy Wednesday night. 

A citizen notified Quincy Police after finding human remains north of the mall at 5009 Oak St. 

Officers determined the remains to have been in the location for quite some time. 

No cause of death has yet been determined.  

A tentative identification has been made, but all authorities are saying now is that the body is that of a male. 

Information as to the identity will be released at a later time.
