Per Lee County Sheriff’s Office:

On September 28th at approximately 9:09 a.m., the Lee County Emergency Telephone System Board (ETSB) received a call regarding a fully involved vehicle fire. The location of the incident was in the Boat Trailer Park Lot at Lowell Park, located at 2114 Lowell Park Road in Dixon. The Lee County Sheriff’s Office, Dixon Rural Fire Department, and Dixon Police Department responded to the scene.

When Dixon Rural Fire arrived at the scene, they began to extinguish the fire and the body of a male subject was observed in the driver’s seat of the vehicle. Due to evidence at the scene, investigators believed that the fire originated from an explosion in the passenger compartment of the vehicle. The Illinois State Fire Marshal’s Office and the Illinois State Police – Crime Scene Services were subsequently contacted to assist with the investigation. Special Agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were also called in to aid at the scene. Once the scene was processed, the Lee County Coroner’s Office removed the body of the male decedent. An autopsy is scheduled for the afternoon of Friday, September 29th and there is hope that the identity of the deceased male can be released at that time. Foul play is not suspected in this incident and the investigation is ongoing.

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office wishes to thank the Dixon Rural Fire Department, the Dixon Park District, the Lee County Coroner’s Office, the Lee County State’s Attorney’s Office, the Illinois State Police, and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for everyone’s assistance with this investigation. Anyone with information on this investigation or any other criminal activity is encouraged to call the Lee County Sheriff’s Office at (815) 284-6631 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-Caught-U. Callers can remain anonymous and receive rewards of up to $1,000 if their information leads to an arrest.
