Body could be that of missing Illinois woman

MONTGOMERY, Ind. - Southwestern Indiana authorities say a body found near a creek could be that of a former Illinois woman who was swept away by floodwaters in December.

Indiana Conservation officers say a resident found the body Friday amid corn stalk debris near the mouth of a creek that feeds into the White River at the Pike-Daviess County line.

An autopsy on the body was scheduled for Saturday afternoon at the Vanderburgh County Morgue in Evansville.

Conservation officers say the body was found near the site where crews launched a search for former Des Plaines, Ill., resident Kathryn McGilll, 31, on Dec. 29 after a vehicle she and her husband were riding in was swept away by floodwaters.

Waterfowl hunters who saw the vehicle swept away raced their boat to the area and rescued 35-year-old Adam McGill after hearing his screams for help. But they couldn't find his wife.
