Elmhurst police released no new details Wednesday about the death of a Bensenville man found Monday afternoon along Salt Creek.

The DuPage County coroner's office performed an autopsy Wednesday morning on Russell Winkler, 45, but would not release his cause of death pending the results of an ongoing police investigation.

Winkler's body was found about 1:20 p.m. Monday along the banks of the creek behind the Diplomat West banquet hall at 681 W. North Ave. Elmhurst police said it appeared Winkler had been dead for more than 24 hours when his body was found.
