Human remains found on Fowler property

Police were combing a property site in Fowler, IN Saturday morning; a site neighbors report may have contained human remains.

Local law enforcement were searching the yard that belonged to the daughter of 68-year-old Nena Metoyer who was reported missing several weeks ago.

Authorities are not saying much, but neighbors said they discovered what are believed to be human remains.

Detectives aren't saying much about where the remains were found or if they're the remains of Metoyer.
Police said Metoyer came to Fowler from Florida in late August to take care of her daughter, 49-year-old Teresa Jarding, who had been suffering from medical issues. One neighbor said she's lived in the neighborhood for nearly three years and had never met Jarding or her family.

Jarding died from medical complications just shortly after Metoyer was reported missing.

As reported earlier, Fowler police believe this case is related to a missing person case from Chicago.
51-year-old Milan Lekich was reported missing two years ago from Chicago and police said is Jarding's ex-husband. Earlier this week, a dismembered body was found inside the garage of the home where Lekich last lived. Police have still not confirmed that it is in fact the body of Lekich.

Copas still attacking former health department

   Chairman also seeks to re-organize, reduce membership of 9-1-1 Board

Iroquois County Board Chairman Rod Copas says results of a forensic audit will show evidence of official misconduct by former employees of the since-dissolved Ford-Iroquois Public Health Department.

Copas told the County Board's Policy & Procedure committee (Thursday) an audit finding will be presented soon. Copas has said in past meetings "that actions were improper" and in his opinion "were criminal."

Copas did not say if there's any kind of a federal investigation underway.

The Illinois Attorney General's Office was involved in an investigation some time ago. The A-G elected not to pursue the case, a spokesman said 'there was nothing criminal.'

The Paxton Record newspaper has published several accounts of Copas' accusations over the last several months. The allegations range from contracts being awarded to health department employees, removing prescription medicine from the office and distributing drugs to staff and family, and use of grant money from the 2008 record-flood without proper documentation.

What has not been reported however, is that recipients of grant money included current employees of the new Iroquois County Health Department. The information was published on an Edgar County Watchdog website.

Solicitation attempt in Manteno prompts warning

Manteno Police issued a warning this week after reports of a junior-high student being approached by a stranger. Police have received no further reports, but did issue a county-wide alert.

It was Monday night when an eighth-grade girl in Manteno was approached by an unidentified man.
The girl described a red- or orange-colored four-door car. It may have had out-of-state plates. The car drove off, after the girl declined a ride.
