Missing Murphysboro woman's body found

WILLIAMSON COUNTY – The body of a Murphysboro woman reported missing Monday was found Thanksgiving morning by hunters in the Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge, the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office said.

The sheriff’s office and the Williamson County Major Case Squad are now investigating the death of Jeannie Schuur. She was 22.

An autopsy is scheduled for Friday. Authorities were not releasing any other information Thursday except to say her body was found on land in an area west of Cambria Road and south of Cardinal Lane.

Relatives reported Schuur missing after no one had heard from her since early Saturday morning when she walked away from a friend’s residence on Modesto Road near the intersection of Illinois 13 and Spillway Road.

Searches were conducted Tuesday and Wednesday, including by helicopter through Black Diamond Aviation and volunteers from SAR K9 Co-op Inc.
