    Sheriff’s deputies responded and found the body of a black female, about 19 to 25 years old, floating in the river east of the Brandon Road locks just south of Joliet, the release said. It appeared the body had only been in the water for a short time.

    Hunter finds woman's body in river

    JOLIET TOWNSHIP -- A young woman found in the Des Plaines River on Tuesday may be a homicide victim.

    Will County Coroner Patrick O'Neil said he believes the case is being investigated as a homicide, although sheriff's police would only go so far as to label the death suspicious.

    The woman, who is black, was described as young -- probably between the ages of 19 and 25. Details on her height, weight or other physical characteristics were not available Tuesday evening.

    O'Neil said the woman had not been identified, but police were checking her fingerprints during the night.

    Police identify found body

    JOLIET TOWNSHIP -- Police have identified a woman found Tuesday in the Des Plaines River as Sandra Poston, 46, of Joliet.

    Poston, whose last known address was on Iowa Avenue, is believed to have died by drowning. But her death is being investigated as a homicide.

    Will County Coroner Patrick O'Neil said certain evidence found on the body was "suggestive of foul play," but he would not elaborate on what police are looking at.

    Women's deaths linked?

    Task force formed to investigate four bodies found in 12 months

    Prosecutors and police are forming a task force to look into the killings of two girls and two women whose bodies have been found in the area in the past 12 months.

    The action comes after the fourth woman, Sandra Poston, was found in the Des Plaines River this week. Her death is believed to have been a homicide.

    Each case involves a black female victim whose body was left in a public place. Two of the victims were in their teens, and two in their 40s.

    No one has been arrested in the deaths, although authorities may have a suspect in one of the cases, said a spokesman for the Office of the Will County State's Attorney.
