A missing mother from north suburban Round Lake Park has been found dead, police said.
Police told the Chicago Tribune the body of Melissa Best, 34, was found in nearby Grayslake after she went missing more than a week ago. She was found Monday night in the parking lot of an apartment complex.
The Tribune reports there were no outward signs of trauma on Best’s body. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.
Police will hold a news conference at 11 a.m. Tuesday to announce further information in Best's case.
