KENOSHA - Kenosha police told Newsradio 620 WTMJ on Thursday that the body found along the shore of Lake Michigan was that of an adult man.
According to a press release by Kenosha authorities, foul play isn't suspected at this time and further testing is being done to determine cause of death.
A medical examiner was conducting an autopsy Thursday morning, and police say they hope to use fingerprints from the autopsy to match remains with those on file.
The body, around six feet tall and 150 pounds, washed up on the lake shore near 66th Street and Third Avenue. The body was found near the Kemper Center.
Authorities believe the individual has been dead anywhere between one and three months.
Police say two boys walking near the lakefront saw the body at the shore and notified an adult who called authorities.
Investigators also say that there have been two missing persons cases in recent months, and they will use autopsy details to determine if either case matches with the body that was found.
