SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — A body pulled from a vehicle discovered submerged in a central Illinois lake has been identified as a 37-year-old man who’s been missing since November.
The State Journal-Register reported the Sangamon County Coroner’s Office identified the body as Doug Cortelyou of Springfield. The coroner said there were no signs of foul play or injuries and lab tests are pending.
A fisherman’s sonar device detected the Chevrolet Silverado truck near a boat launch on Lake Springfield early Jan. 5. The man’s body was found after the truck was removed from the lake.
Cortelyou had been missing since Nov. 18. The Missing Person Awareness Network reported he had last been seen leaving his grandmother’s Springfield home.
