We are told rescue workers have found the body of an adolescent girl. This is a story we have been following since the weekend. We don't know if it is that of 5-year-old Ashley Gleeson, but we can tell you that divers and searchers on horseback have been searching this area of Channahon. That is about 47 miles southwest of Chicago. The father, Patrick Michael Gleeson, is in police custody in Michigan where he is charged with killing his girlfriend.
He has not told police anything about his children, but we can tell you that his son Joshua was found in this area, shot to death, and now the body of an adolescent has been found, trying to confirm if it is that of Ashley Gleeson, Joshua's sister.
