Thanks, Texasmom, for the updated article.  Here's another article.

Woman’s body recovered from Rock River near Byron
Posted Nov 09, 2012 @ 04:19 PM

 ::snipping2::
About 1:30 p.m., an off-duty firefighter fishing in the river saw the body ensnared in a tree about 65 yards north of an Illinois Department of Transportation boat ramp and about 65 yards into the river.

Winnebago County Sheriff’s detectives were on the scene along with members of the Ogle County Sheriff’s Department. The Winnebago County Sheriff’s Department has been investigating the disappearance of a Machesney Park woman, 30-year-old Katrina Smith, who disappeared Oct. 22.

There was no indication of whether the body is that of the missing Smith.

Rescuers said the body appeared to have been in the water for some time and had started to deteriorate. The body was clothed but because of the length of time that had passed, the clothing had faded to the point of being unidentifiable.

Woman's Body Found in Rock River
By: Marty Kasper
Updated: November 9, 2012

BYRON - Shortly after noon Friday an off duty Byron fire fighter was fishing in the waters just south of the city of Byron, when "he believed that he located a body on the Rock River," said Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn.

Harn says his department along with the Byron Fire Department responded to a stretch of the Rock River near Route 2 and Townline Road, and pulled a body out of the water that had be caught on this log.

"It appears it's been in the water for a period of time, to what extent I can't tell you," said Harn.

Harn says the body had begun to decompose and was covered in Algae, and he believes it is that of a white female.

"I will confirm that it appears to be a female," said Harn.

Harn says the woman's body was found without pants, and that her clothing had deteriorated so much they couldn't distinguish a color.

"It's a little decomposed, but I think that were going to be able to positively I.D. her," said Harn.

At this point Harn can't say how the body got there or how the woman might have died, nor did he see any trauma marks on her body.

"I didn't notice any," said Harn.  "But I can't say until after the coroner does his job."
