    Skeleton remains of two men found near the border of Illinois and Indiana near Powderhorn Lake. LE believe they have been there 1.5 years. Location is an old abandoned manufacturing area - this area was heavily in the steel mill business in the early and mid 20th century. Local LE do not have any missing persons reports.

    Additionally, these remains were found by the FBI using a cadaver dog! That's a surprising twist. Why they were there is not explained.

    I can't find ANYTHING else about this! Not in any of the big Chicago news sources, not in Topix, not in a Google News search for "Burnham, IL".

    Agreed. The only reason for FBI to be there with cadaver dogs is if they already had reason to suspect there were bodies there. Someone tipped them off.

    Hoping they can determine who these men are and offer their families some closure.

    Weird. My guess is mob related and they're trying to keep in on the down low.

    I was trying to think of the "story" behind this:

    - Possible Israel Keyes vics
    - Gang related (most likely but yet, seems unlikely) - the South side of Chicago, while it has a few nice towns, is mostly not a nice place.
    - Granted this doesn't mean anything but I have not heard of any Mob killings in the Chicago area ever (born in 80s). I do know they are still around and it is possible they're getting more active again with the new casino in town and now video gambling has been legalized.

    Does anyone know if more information was ever released about these 2 bodies? The way it was immediately handed off to the FBI almost lends credence to Claudette's theory that they are Israel Keyes victims.
