Champaign authorities hope an autopsy and forensic pathology will lead to the identification of a body recovered from Clinton Lake Sunday. Meanwhile, police say the case of a young woman missing for nearly a week has shifted from from ''disappearance to a death investigation.''
Police have been searching for 24-year-old Ashley Gibson. They are continuing to seek evidence into the source of Gibson's disappearance and are encouraging anyone with information to contact Champaign Police at (217) 351-4545. You can also call Champaign County Crime Stoppers at (217) 373-8477.
Authorities say information developed in the missing person case involving Gibson directed Champaign Police Detectives to an exploratory search of evidence at Clinton Lake, which is located in DeWitt.
