No ID of body found in Maquon storage unit; DNA, dental records needed

MAQUON — The remains of a body found in a storage unit in Maquon Friday night have yet to be identified. And no arrests have been made in the case.

A news release Saturday said the owner of the storage unit was detained and later taken to St. Mary Medical Center in Galesburg for medical reasons. Due to medical reasons, no charges have been filed at this time, the release said.

“I am waiting on an official identification before I can release any names,” Knox County Sergeant Brad Davis confirmed Monday in an email.  “Most likely we will have to wait on DNA results or dental records to make the ID.”

Davis confirmed Monday morning that no arrests have been made, pending the results of the investigation.
