According to the paper, teeth were found and a dental examination was scheduled for Monday; a forensic “bone specialist” is also being consulted. 

“We have no leads as to who this is,” DuPage County Coroner Richard A. Jorgensen told the paper, adding that investigators do not know the gender of the person or the cause or manner of death, and declined to give any more information as to the parts of the body found.

Downers Grove police confirmed to Patch in an e-mail that the Woodridge Police Department was handling the investigation; according to the paper, the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office Forensic Unit and the Felony Investigative Assistance Team are also involved.

The wooded area is northeast of Ide's Grove East Park and south of the shopping center at the corner of 75th Street and Lemont Road.
