The DeKalb County man whose body was found Wednesday in the Kishwaukee River died of a gunshot wound to the head. That's the word today from the DeKalb County Coroner.
The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department says the autopsy and investigation turned up no signs of a struggle or trauma. 23 year old Steven Schulz was reported missing earlier this week: his pickup was found near the Kishwaukee River in northern DeKalb County. A full autopsy report will be available in the near future, after lab results are returned.
A dive team called in from St. Charles found the gun police believe was used to shoot Schulz. The case is still being investigated by the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department, although Sheriff Roger Scott says there is no threat to public safety.
