Illinois State University graduate, Jelani Day, was the body found in the Illinois River, according to the coroner.

Day body was found on September 4th in the Illinois River floating just east of the Illinois 251 bridge, about a mile from where the car was found.

It took nearly three weeks for authorities to identify the body. The LaSalle County coroner did that Thursday, through forensic dental identification and DNA testing and comparison.

He went missing on August 24th. His vehicle was found two days later (August 26th) in Peru, Illinois which is 60 miles away from where he was last seen. The clothes Day was wearing where he was last seen at were in his car when authorities found his car.

Bloomington Police are expected to release more information at a press conference later Thursday.

Anyone with any information about Day’s case should contact the LaSalle County Sheriff’s Office at (815) 433-2161.

Our condolences goes out to his mother, family, and friend. RIP KING
