MCHENRY COUNTY, ILL — Illinois police are asking Wisconsin residents for help identifying the body of a man found dead just five miles south of the Wisconsin border near Walworth County on May 4.

The McHenry County Coroner's office responded to a report of a body near the Rush Creek Conservation area in Harvard, Illinois, officials said. That is just about five miles away from the state line. Officials said the death is not suspicious.

The body appears to be of a white male between the ages of 50 and 70. He is approximately 220 pounds and 5'10".

The coroners attempts at identifying the body with DNA tests were unsuccessful which is why they are asking for the public's help identifying the man.

If you have any information about the identity of this person, please contact the McHenry County Coroner’s Office at or call 815-334-4773.
