Rockford Scanner™: Dead Body In Boone County

Update: Officials have identified the body that was found in Belvidere yesterday as 29-year-old Jory Jeff Ross Keller

Unknown if it is related to his death. But according to the Rockford Area Crime Stoppers, Keller was wanted for Burglary according to their website.

The chief has updated us and said the victim is a White male believed to be in his 20’s.  If you have a missing loved one that fits that description to call the police. The shots fired were unconfirmed.  Initial reports were saying there was gunfire and that is why the utility workers went to investigate, and found the body. But the chief did not confirm the gunfire. The cause of the death is under investigation, but they are treating it as a homicide at this time. They used a drone to assist in the investigation. The body was approx. 1/4 a mile off into a field/wood near Shaw rd, near Beaver Creek. Located East of Shaw rd, by the 2nd electrical pylon, approx. a 1/4 mile down the path along the trail. Close to the Beaver Creek. The area is thick with high grass and weeds approx. 6 feet high and the ground is like a swampy area, and kind of hard to navigate according to neighbors.

Sources are reporting a breaking news scene in Boone County.  It happened approx. 9:30 am this morning near Shaw and Williamsburg in Boone County

Reports are saying there was gunshots and now there is a person that is dead.

Utility employees found the body. 

Sounds like it was in the field/woods area between Shaw and Distillery rd near the Beaver Creek.

This is still developing.
No other information at this time.

Rockford Scanner™: Fatal Accident Near Janesville


On 8/9/19 at 8:53 PM, the Janesville Police Department and Janesville Fire Department responded to a car vs pedestrian crash in the 1200 Block of N Parker Dr. The pedestrian, a 45 year old Janesville resident did not survive.

The crash was witnessed by a Janesville Police Officer. The Officer was traveling north and observed a south bound vehicle strike the pedestrian. The Officer had not observed the pedestrian prior to the crash. The Officer exited his vehicle and flagged down a Janesville Fire Department ambulance which was also traveling north on Parker Dr. The pedestrian began receiving medical care in less than a minute from the impact and was transported to Mercy Hospital and Trauma Center where he was pronounced dead.

The crash was witnessed by a Janesville Officer, several employees of Panoramic, and another motorist. None of the witnesses reported any unsafe driving by the vehicle and none reported having observed the pedestrian prior to the impact. The driver of the vehicle exhibited no signs of impairment and there was no indication that would suggest distracted driving as the officer observed that the vehicle appeared to be yielding to the approaching ambulance that was coming from the south with its emergency lights and siren

A Janesville Police Crash Reconstructionist responded to investigate the crash. Preliminary calculations suggest the vehicle was traveling between 27 and 31 MPH in the posted 35 MPH zone at the time of the crash. The driver of the vehicle was not issued any citations.

The possibility of alcohol being related to the pedestrian’s movements is being investigated.
