Body found north of Vermilion River Sunday

The LaSalle County Coroner’s Office says the body of 71-year-old Thomas J. Schiffbauer, of Streator, was found north of the Vermilion River on Sunday.

The sheriff’s office says the body was found near the Red, White, and Blue Bridge east of Leonore.

Authorities are investigating.

An earlier version of this story said that Schiffbauer was found in the Vermilion River. An coroner’s report from Monday afternoon indicates that he was found north of the River. We regret the error.
