Female Body Found!

January 19, 2008

Chicago police Saturday afternoon recovered a woman's body from Lake Michigan near Fullerton Parkway.

A report came in to Chicago police about 2:40 p.m. about a body found in the water, Officer John Mirabelli said. No other details were available.

Fullerton Parkway meets Lake Michigan at Lincoln Park, just south of the Diversey Harbor Lagoon.

This is about 35 mins from Bolingbrook IL

This would just be too much since it's her birthday today. I mean, it would be a good thing, but wow.

I've been looking for updates to this story, and so far there's nothing. At this point all we know is that it's a woman. There was nothing more, no race mentioned, or possible age of the victim, or how long the woman had been in the water. The news reports from Chicago say the police have given no further information.

So, it's a matter of waiting. It will probably be at least some time tomorrow or Monday before they give further details. There was a brief video on one of the Chicago news sites, showing the police pulling the body from the water, but you can't really see anything. My impression is that the body was small, and this only from the fact that it didn't look like it took much effort for the police to pick it up. The video is here at this link - the story is on the right column.

Thread on this unidentified body here http://websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=58816

The first report I read was this

The Chicago Fire Department says the body is that of a woman, possibly someone who was reported missing recently.

I'm not sure what "recently" really means....

Thanks Chicoliving!

"possibly someone who was reported missing recently." That is vague, as the word "recently" could mean last week or last month or even a few months ago.

The body was frozen which I would think indicates she has been there for a little while as the temp when they found her was at 33 degrees.

My first thought when I read the other thread was Stacy. Do we know of another missing woman from the Chicago area recently?

Police would not confirm whether the body was that of Alma Mendez, 39, who has been missing since she left her Chicago Heights home to go jogging in the Sauk Trail Woods at 26th Street and Euclid Avenue in neighboring South Chicago Heights on Sunday

Thanks, Poco. Sounds like a better possibility even if we were all hoping Stacy would be found today.

I'm wrong - that's an old article I believe - from Oct 2007, but let me double check.

Geez, googling bodies Lake Michigan and a slew of links comes up. Looks like Lake Michigan is a popular dumping ground for dead bodies.

Monday is a Holiday. It is going to be a long wait unless they can make a positive ID from a family member before then.

I have been searching around as well, and can't find any active recent missing persons from the chicago area.

I searched missing persons sites as well as the news sites...it looks like everyone that was missing has been found except for stacy.....maybe we will hear something soon......

Lisa Stebic is also missing from the area. They are the only two I could find reported as missing recently that have not been found.

Nothing new in the Sunday Trib, but did find it interesting that on the on-line version that right under the article about the lady that had drowned was an article about Drew Peterson being "the suspect" in the case of his missing wife Stacy.

I hope this is one of our missing ladies !

It isn't small. I stopped the clip I found on another site and you can clearly see the body bag length would be that of an adult. It took several men to move it (appears to be 6). The weight would be heavier since they said it was frozen.

Regardless of if it's Stacy, it's good that a body has been found and now a family somewhere can start getting some answers to what happened to their loved one.

Body of Woman Discovered in Lake Michigan
CHICAGO (STNG) ― The body of a 27-year-old Gold Coast woman was found in Lake Michigan near Fullerton Avenue on the North Side Saturday afternoon.

Officers were called to the 2400 block of North Lake Shore Drive of reports of an unresponsive female body in the water at 2:40 p.m., according to police News Affairs Officer Tom Polick.

"It is a death investigation at this stage," Polick said.

The woman was identified as Robyn Bercovici, of 63 E. Scott St., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office. Bercovici was pronounced dead at the Stein Institute at 5:50 p.m. Saturday.
