Woman's Body Found in Franklin County Reservoir

MULKEYTOWN, Ill. (AP) - Franklin County officials say the body of a 35-year-old woman has been pulled from the New Christopher Reservoir.

The (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan reports that Coroner Marty Leffler identified the woman as Amanda Louise Harvill. He says Harvill's body was visible near her 1999 Dodge pickup truck, which was partly submerged near the reservoir's boat ramp.

A passerby saw the truck and called police around 8:25 a.m. Sunday. Authorities say the truck's driver's side door was open.

Leffler says the death remains under investigation and an autopsy is planned.
