Good afternoon, Chicago.
Decades after it was discovered decayed, the body of a man found dead in a sealed wooden crate at the Lockport Lock in 1980 has been finally identified by DNA evidence, the Will County coroner’s office said.
In 1980, the crate containing the man’s body had been pulled from a grate preventing debris from flowing into the Lockport Locks power plant. The 4-foot-long crate had been nailed shut with a 1.5-inch hole drilled into it, with the body of the unidentified man sealed inside, Laurie Summers’ office said.
