POLO – Police are investigating the death of at least one person whose body was found today in a home at 604 North St. in Polo.
At this point, Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn will confirm only that Polo police, assisted by Illinois State Police and his department, are investigating a death, and that the public "is not in jeopardy at this time."
Harn has not confirmed the cause of death, nor has he released the name. No arrests have been made.
Police were called early this afternoon. The coroner was called to the scene, and ISP crime scene investigators are on site.
