Police search 26-acre area in Sheridan on Sunday for investigation

NT Staff

The Illinois State Police, Dwight Police, Morris Police, fire departments from MABAS Divisions 15 & 25 and the La Salle County Sheriff’s Office are conducting a large-scale ground search beginning at 8 a.m. Sunday in the Village of Sheridan, according to a state police news release. The purpose of the search is to locate any evidence that may assist in the Denker homicide investigation and the recent burglaries in Grundy County.

Law enforcement and fire officials want to alert the residents and local communities about the ground activity and first responder presence in the area. The 26-acre site is not being disclosed for security reasons, and the search area will be cordoned off with an established perimeter to ensure the area is restricted to law enforcement and fire personnel only. 

It is expected that the ground search will last for approximately five hours. More than 100 law enforcement and fire personnel are expected to work in the area.
