The body of Chicago School Board president Michael Scott was found floating in the Chicago River near the Merchandise Mart early Monday in the River North neighborhood, police sources said.
Scott was reported missing from his home in the Monroe police district on the Near West Side in Chicago Sunday and police believe the body pulled from the river is him, sources said.
His car was found parked near the river where the body was found, police said. NBC5 reported that Scott’s blue Cadillac was found and towed from the scene.
The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office would only confirm that the body of an unidentified black man in his 50s had been recovered.
