    Nothing that I have seen and I can't find any additional news online regarding this case. I've noticed lots of UID bodies found in Chicago and sadly little if any follow up news on many of the cases.

    I wonder if it was wrapped to hide it or if it was a homeless person using a tarp to keep the cold away. Anyone ever find out anything else about this one?

    Here's another report on the body: http://www.myfoxchicago.com/story/17...-park-boutique Which makes it sound far more fishy - plastic? Duct tape? Seems less like something to keep warm in...

    Yeah, I don't think he duct taped himself in there by accident.

    I don't see anything anywhere. No listing in NAMUS, no updated articles...
