Human remains found in Vermilion County

Vermilion County Coroner Peggy Johnson said (Thursday) that some remains found Thursday in the rubble of a house that was leveled by a fire were determined to be human.
Now, an autopsy is planned Friday morning.

Johnson reported people going through the rubble found the upper torso of a person buried deep below the debris in the basement.

Johnson thanked Steve Mason of the Illinois State Fire Marshall's Office and all the workers who assisted in digging through the rubble in order to bring closure to this complicated case.
