Multiple experts are evaluating human remains found in Woodridge last month, according to DuPage County Coroner Richard Jorgensen.
Two children discovered the remains while walking in a wooded area near the 7900 block of Lemont Road in Woodridge March 30.
"We continue our investigation and do not have any further reports at this time," Jorgensen wrote in an e-mail. "We have multiple experts evaluating the remains and will do our best to communicate the results when they are finalized."
According to the Chicago Tribune, teeth were found and a dental examination was scheduled; a forensic “bone specialist” was also being consulted.
“We have no leads as to who this is,” DuPage County Coroner Richard A. Jorgensen told the paper last month, adding that investigators did not know the gender of the person or the cause or manner of death.
Patch will post more information as it becomes available.
Downers Grove police confirmed to Patch in an e-mail that the Woodridge Police Department was handling the investigation; according to the paper, the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office Forensic Unit and the Felony Investigative Assistance Team were also involved.
The wooded area is northeast of Ide's Grove East Park and south of the shopping center at the corner of 75th Street and Lemont Road.
