The Jersey County Sheriff and Coroner's Office have identified the human remains found Thursday night. The body of 25-year-old Dean March was found in a wooded area near Legate Drive, which is just south of the intersection of Illinois Routes 3 and 109.
March had been missing since around July 16 according to information provided by the Sheriff's Department. An autopsy was performed and a cause of death will be determined after all investigations and tests have been completed. The Sheriff's Department spent much of last week sifting through information as they tried to figure out what happened to March.
