Decomposed Body Found by Hikers, Presumed to be missing Aurora woman, Marilyn Bethell

A badly decompossed body was found by hikers isn the rural area of unincorporated Kane County. The police are investigating the possibility that this is the body of Marilyn Bethell.

A decomposed body found Monday in rural unincorporated Kane County has police investigating the possibility that the body is that of an Aurora woman missing since October.

A hiker discovered the body about 5 p.m. along the Illinois Prairie Path between Savannah Drive and Kirk Road, said Dan Ferrelli, spokesman for the Aurora police, which initially responded to the call.

“Any time there is a body found and you have a missing person, we’re going to look into that, but it’s too early to tell.”

The body is thought to be that of Marilyn Bethell, who went missing on October 31 under suspicious circumstances.

On Monday, Bethell’s vehicle was heavily damaged in a high-speed crash less than a mile from her home.

Authorities — however — say Bethell wasn’t behind the wheel when her car smashed into a parked vehicle. Witnesses told police they saw a man with a gun get out of Bethell’s wrecked car and hop into another car with a second man also carrying a gun.

At this point according to authorities it is too early to determine who’s body was discovered.

Ramsey would not comment on any other details or evidence at the scene, nor would he speculate on how the person died.

Kane County Coroner Chuck West was called to the scene late Monday night and had no information as to when the results of an autopsy would be available.

The remains were found about two miles from Bethell’s home in the 2500 block of Quail Court. Aurora police have suspected foul play in her disappearance because of suspicious circumstances related to the case.
