Very interesting article. For a whole lot of reasons, Matt Holliday does NOT seem like a reasonable/serviceable "quick fix" fill-in for Matt Adams over at first (certainly not for the remainder of the 2015 season). Holliday has never played there, and (to put it politely) he is a bit long in the tooth to start learning all of the ins-and-outs of playing a corner infield spot (especially in the middle…

Body found behind Oak Street Mall

1 year, 1 month 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.

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.
