Peoria Police investigating a suspicious death


Peoria County Coroner, Jamie Harwood, confirmed a person was found dead at an apartment complex in the 800 block of Hurlburt St., Monday.

Police arrived at the apartment around 2:44 PM on reports of a man down inside. Police found the man unresponsive and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

“Due to the fact that it’s being called a suspicious death, we will treat it with the preservation of evidence until we can rule out or rule in that it was a crime. At this time, I’m not calling it a crime, but it is a suspicious death and we will process all the evidence accordingly,” Peoria Public Information Officer Amy Dotson said.

The autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.
