An autopsy, performed after the body of Alberto Alvarez was found, confirmed foul play was not involved in his death.

Alvarez was reported missing after he left home, without his cell phone or diabetes medication, at about 5 p.m. Sunday, March 9, 2014 but never arrived at his destination.

A property caretaker found Alvarez’s body two days later at Fyre Lake in Sherrard, Illinois.  Police said then that his death was suspicious but they did not think foul play was involved.

An autopsy performed Wednesday, March 12, confirmed those findings that no foul play was suspected according to Mercer County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Jeff Dale.

The nature of Mr. Alvarez’s death was not released.

      I share your thoughts. I was told by a friend that the car was found in Rock Island, 18 miles from where the body was found. Two other people have gone missing recently from RI and never found.
