Identity Still Not Released Of Altoona Man Found In Rockford

Police haven’t named an 80-year-old man from western Wisconsin whose body was found in Rockford Illinois last week.

Altoona police Kelly Bakken said her department was notified, after Rockford police determined the body found in the Rock River last Tuesday was that of an Altoona resident.

Investigators deemed the death suspicious due to the nature of the injuries. Bakken said Friday that several “persons of interest” were in custody, but didn’t say if that was in Altoona or Rockford.
