Boy's body pulled from Des Plaines River
Police in the Western suburbs say they've found a young boy's body in the Des Plaines River.
Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart said the boy was found in the water near McCormick Woods in North Riverside. The sheriff's office said the Cook County medical examiner plans a Wednesday autopsy to identify the boy and determine a cause of death. Sheriff's officials say a kayaker spotted the body Tuesday afternoon.
The sheriff's office said in a news release that authorities have been focused on the Des Plaines River since April in their search for 1-year-old Bryeon Hunter of Maywood.
The boy's mother and her boyfriend are charged with murder in his death.
