58,189 COVID-19 vaccinations administered statewide
58,189 COVID-19 vaccinations were administered statewide on Monday, almost doubling the number administered a week earlier. Illinois state public health officials reported that the number of confirmed coronavirus cases has decreased since early November. However, state and local officials are still working to ensure that all residents have access to the vaccine.
The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) has been working with local health departments, community partners, and stakeholders to ensure that all residents receive a free COVID-19 vaccine. IDPH will continue to monitor vaccine orders and vaccine uptake to ensure that everyone has access to the vaccine.
IDPH has also prioritized enrolling health departments, pharmacies, and hospitals to serve as providers for the COVID-19 vaccine. IDPH will monitor vaccination uptake and will reevaluate strategies to increase uptake in areas with low vaccination coverage.
Ground-penetrating radar used to scan parking garage
During the 1990s, the Springfield Police Department conducted a massive investigation into the disappearance of three women. The police were assisted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Missouri State Highway Patrol. The case was never solved.
After an extensive search of the local area, the police found no evidence of the women’s disappearance. The investigation continued into the ensuing years. In 1993, the police searched 40 acres of land in Webster County. The investigation eventually led to the discovery of a large hole dug by backhoes. The hole contained two possible pieces of evidence, but the evidence was inconclusive.
Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) is a non-destructive technique used to detect subsurface objects and utilities. It consists of an electromagnetic signal transmitted through the ground and a receiver that detects the resulting echoes. The receiver records the variations within the signal and provides a reading that can be interpreted by a qualified technician.
Skeletal remains found in a shallow grave near McDaniel Lake
Earlier this month, the city of Springfield, Illinois made the news when a resident of a home near McDaniel Lake in southwest Springfield discovered skeletal remains in a shallow grave.

In an effort to find out what’s going on, police investigators gathered evidence in a series of searches. One of the more intriguing finds was a metal bar in a shallow grave near McDaniel Lake. The bar was presumably left behind by the deceased, according to the city of Springfield.
Unidentified male body discovered by a private citizen
Using a combination of forensic technology and traditional investigative methods, the Cold Case Detectives have reconstructed the unsolved homicide of an 18-year-old. Their work has provided closure to the family of a boy from the north suburbs and a woman from the southwest.
The Cold Case Detectives assemble a database of available evidence and then sift through it to identify potential suspects. This is done in part by conducting the same ol’ fashioned search on a computer and then comparing it with DNA evidence, latent prints, and other related clues. In some cases, the results are so good, they are used as the basis for a new trial or conviction.
