A man found dead behind a house in Madison is now the subject of a Major Case Squad investigation of possible homicide.
The Major Case Squad was activated Friday to investigate the death of a man who was found behind an unoccupied residence in the 2000 block of Edwardsville Road. The man’s identity was not immediately released.
A police statement said the man had “numerous injuries,” but the cause and manner of death were unknown. An autopsy was pending in Madison County.
More than a dozen detectives from Illinois agencies were working on the case. Anyone with information is asked to call the Major Case Squad at 618-709-7753 or the Madison Police Department at 618-876-4300.
