The coroner’s office said the human skeletal remains that were found in Libertyville on Saturday belong to a woman, and authorities are working to identify her.
The Libertyville Police Department responded around 8:15 a.m. Saturday to the 1800 block of Hollister Drive in Libertyville.
The 1800 block of Hollister Drive has only one building on the block — the 1800 building — which contains multiple doctors and other medical offices.
Police said they received a call for a report of “partial skeletal remains” that were discovered.
Officers arrived and confirmed the remains were human.
A Lake County Sheriff’s canine unit was called to the scene to assist in conducting a search of the area.
Officers later found additional remains in a wooded area.
The Lake County Coroner’s Office also responded to the scene.
Lake County Chief Deputy Coroner Steve Newton said Monday afternoon that the remains appear to belong to one woman.
The coroner’s office is working with police to identify the woman.
An autopsy was completed on Monday and toxicology studies are pending.
Police said the incident “appears to be isolated and there is no threat to the community.”
