Stolen Rockford funeral home van, body found in separate places

A van stolen from a funeral home in Rockford over the weekend and the body inside it were both found in Chicago, but nearly a day apart, according to Rockford police. According to ABC 7, “The van was found Saturday evening around 5:30 p.m. in Chicago in the 1400-block of East 87th Street, near the border of Avalon Park and Calumet Heights. Rockford police said the body that was inside, which officials said was in a bag and not a coffin, was still missing.”

Police have yet to arrest anyone in this case.
