Body of Missing Accident Victim Tanya Shannon Spotted by Kris Habermehl Aboard CBS Chopper 2


A CBS Chicago 2 helicopter with veteran news chopper reporter Kris Habermehl onboard and pilot Jeff Fair at the controls were following a search that was just getting started when the CBS crew discovered a body. Authorities in LaSalle County then found the body of Tanya Shannon, in the cornfield below. She was a mother of four who most likely left an accident scene in search of help after a vehicle crash on December 5, 2010. Her husband, Dale Shannon died in the one-vehicle crash into a utility pole. His blood alcohol was .266 — more than three times the legal limit of .08.

Tanya Shannon’s body was found at 9:21 a.m. Monday near the intersection of North 20th and East 27th roads in a rural area of unincorporated Brookfield Township, according to LaSalle County Sheriff Tom Templeton. The location is about three-quarters of a mile southeast of the crash scene. is an Amazon Associate website, which means that a small percentage of your purchases gets paid to at no extra cost to you.
