The East Peoria Police Department is investigating after a decomposing body was discovered.

The remains were found on the TP&W railroad property on Columbia Street, just off West Washington Street.

Tazewell County Coroner Charles Hanley said Tuesday he made a positive identification on the body, but was withholding that information pending family notifications.

Additional information wasn't immediately available. The East Peoria Police, Tazewell County Coroner's Office, and Illinois State Police are investigating.
