Though the forest preserve police had initial jurisdiction over the body discovered Wednesday morning, Cook County Sheriff's Police are taking over the murder investigation, Truppa added.

Campbell's unclothed body was found at the edge of the Penny Road Pond in a forest preserve near the intersection of Penny and Old Sutton roads. A passer-by called police at 9:06 a.m. Wednesday.

Before Campbell's identification Thursday afternoon, estimates of the age of the body had wavered between 20s and 40s.

Information on the estimated time of death, or where the murder occurred, was not immediately available, Cook County Sheriff's Police spokeswoman Liane Jackson said.

"It does not appear that the body was there for an extensive period of time," she added.
