The body of a Jacksonville man was discovered in Lake Jacksonville this morning.
According to Morgan County Coroner Jeff Lair, 28-year-old Casey McDaniel was found dead this morning at around 9 a.m. in the Western Illinois Youth Camp area of the lake. Lair says it’s believed McDaniel shot himself on a boat dock sometime last night.
The Morgan County Search and Rescue Dive Team retrieved McDaniel’s body this morning.
The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office got the initial call; the Jacksonville Police Department and Illinois State Police also responded.
Lair says McDaniel was the caretaker of the camp’s property.
