The Will County coroner says the body found in the Des Plaines River is that of a Joliet woman whose son is charged in her death.
The Herald-News in Joliet reported that the Will County coroner's office identified the body as 54-year-old Jeanie Parker. Parker disappeared from her home on March 21. A fisherman found her body floating in the river near Channahon on Saturday.
Parker's son, 21-year-old Charles McCullum, is charged with murder, aggravated battery and concealing a homicidal death. The coroner said Parker died from multiple stab wounds.
