Evanston police are investigating the discovery of a man’s body in a storage locker in the basement of an apartment building in the 1200 block of Harvard Terrace.
Police were called to the scene at 5:35 p.m. Friday. Residents of the building on the northeast corner of Asbury Avenue and Harvard Terrace came home to find their building roped off with crime scene tape and police asking neighbors whether they had seen anything related to the apparent homicide.
Evanston police detectives, assisted by the North Regional Major Crimes Task Force, are investigating the incident.
The identity of the victim — who police say appears to be an adult male — hasn’t been released, pending positive identification and notification of next of kin.
Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact the Evanston Police Department at 847-866-5000 or use Text-A-Tip anonymously by texting the information to CRIMES (274637) and entering EPDTIP in the message line with the tip information.
