Body found in submerged vehicle in Danville

Divers with the Vermilion County sheriff’s department discovered a vehicle in the water at Lake Vermilion Saturday morning.

Sheriff Pat Hartshorn confirmed there was a woman's body inside.

In a release issued later in the day, Hartshorn said "there does not appear to be any signs of foul play."
The search took place at the Lake Vermilion boat ramp area, on Danville’s north side.

The sheriff said a female called 9-1-1 saying a friend of hers called her to say he had driven into Lake Vermilion and was unable to get out of her car. The sheriff said it certainly appeared the victim had tried to call for help.
The car was pulled from the water and the victim was found inside.

Coroner Jane McFadden is expected to release the woman’s name later today (Monday).

Iroquois County citizens warned about scam >

Another scam is circulating Iroquois County. The Sheriff’s Department reports several elderly citizens have reported receiving telephone calls from subjects identifying themselves as “grand kids” and stating they’ve been arrested and need bond money.

The caller requests the person purchase gift cards, store cards or I-tune cards from box-store retailers. Once the cards are purchased the person is instructed to call a number and provide the gift card information ---resulting in your money disappearing !

The Iroquois County Sheriff’s Department advises anyone getting such a call....to hang up on the caller, do not purchase any gift cards, contact other family members about the call and report it to local law enforcement.

NEVER GIVE SUCH CALLERS ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION.
