38-year-old Christopher Engel found dead early Saturday; area law enforcement still awaiting toxicology, autopsy results

Area law enforcement are still investigating the death of a Bushnell man who was found dead by a passer-by near the intersection of Walnut and Davis streets early Saturday morning.

Christopher Engel, 38, was found at around 8:20 a.m., McDonough County Sheriff Rick VanBrooker confirmed late Saturday night, and that there were no apparent injuries on his person.

"There is no reason to suspect foul play at this point," VanBrooker said, adding that officials, however, are still awaiting autopsy and toxicology results.

Both the sheriff's office and the Bushnell Police Department are looking into Engel's death, as part of a joint investigation.
