The sheriff’s office is investigating after a 58-year-old man who had been missing was found dead in the crawl space of his residence in unincorporated McHenry County.
The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office and Hebron-Alden-Greenwood Fire Protection District responded around 10:15 a.m. Saturday to the 16400 block of Route 173 in unincorporated Harvard, which is in Alden Township.
911 dispatchers reported a person had been found deceased at the location.
Paramedics arrived and confirmed the man was dead, according to fire department radio traffic. The McHenry County Coroner’s Office was requested.
McHenry County Coroner Dr. Michael Rein told Lake and McHenry County Scanner the subject has been identified as David J. Clark, 58, of unincorporated Harvard.
Rein said Clark had been missing and his body was located in the crawl space of the house.
Clark lived at the residence where he was found, Rein said.
A nearby resident told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that Clark lived with other roommates and had been missing for approximately 10 days prior to being found.
An autopsy was performed on Clark on Monday and Rein said the man’s death does not appear to be suspicious in nature.
Further details on the cause or manner of death have not been released yet.
The sheriff’s office refused to release any information on the case, saying that it is an open and ongoing investigation.
The incident remains under investigation by the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office and McHenry County Coroner’s Office.
