The Illinois State Police are asking for the public's help as they try to piece together the events that led to the death of an Alhambra man. Authorities recovered the body of 65-year old August W. Stark from the Mississippi River on Thursday between the Martin Luther King and Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge. It was the second time this week a body has been recovered from the river. On Monday, authorities pulled the body of 33-year old Jason Hayes of West Alton from the Mississippi River.
If anyone has information on the prior whereabouts of Stark, they are asked to contact Special Agent Bryant Johnson by calling 618-346-3768 or 618-346-3990.
