PEORIA, Ill. (AP) — An autopsy is scheduled on the body of a Chicago man found shot to death in a Peoria backyard.
The Journal Star reports (http://bit.ly/17uyydS) that the man found Friday afternoon was identified as 31-year-old Carnell A. Ashford. Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll says it appears Ashford “had been there for hours, perhaps.” An autopsy is planned for Saturday.
An alley near where Ashford’s body was found was the scene of homicide in 2010.
