Citing police dispatch reports, authorities discovered a dead body at a North Side Edgewater neighborhood beach.
Around 6:26 a.m., a 911 caller saw someone laying on the sand, about 2-feet away from the water, at Lane Beach Park, also known as Thorndale Avenue Beach, at 5915 North Sheridan Road.
At least two people called authorities to report the sighting, but neither caller was sure if the person was male or female.
When a responding officer was asked about the person's condition, he said it appears to be a DOA.
Authorities later described the deceased as a man, possibly in his 40s.
