Early this week a body was found in the Rock River and this morning we have officially been given information about the identity of the body.

We have an update to a story we reported earlier this week about a body found in the Rock River.

The initial recovery was very intense including multiple rescue teams attempting to recover the body, and when the body was recovered, there was no indication as to who it was.

Then we found out it was a man's body.

And now we know more about the victim.

According to My Stateline, the body is that of a local homeless man, Randy Wilder.
