Illinois State Police, Chicago Police and Chicago Fire Department Engine 95 and paramedics responded to a report about 7:00 a.m. Monday of a body in the outbound lanes of the Eisenhower Expressway ‘Ike’ (Interstate 290). A Chicago Transit Authority employee reported a body that appeared motionless was located in an outbound lane of the Eisenhower expressway near Kostner on the Laramie side. Rescuers discovered the body of a dead woman at the reported site.
Early investigation indicates the woman jumped to her death at the scene where her body was found — not confirmed.
