A body pulled from a Marquette Park lagoon last week was the body of a 14-year-old boy, authorities said.

The body was identified as 14-year-old Julius Campbell of the 5900 block of South Artesian Avenue, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Campbell’s death was ruled a homicide after an autopsy conducted on April 13 revealed he suffered multiple stab wounds, officials said.
