A Pekin man was found dead Thursday morning near a shed behind the UAW Senior Citizens Center on South Parkway Drive.

Jacob Sutton, 32, was pronounced dead shortly after he was found at about 10:15 a.m. behind the building at 444 S. Parkway.

“A witness saw him walk up behind the (UAW) building shortly before he was found” deceased, said Pekin Police Deputy Chief Don Baxter.

No signs of foul play were initially found and the cause of death has not yet been determined, Baxter said. He didn’t know if Sutton was wearing a coat or jacket in the morning’s low-digit temperatures.

The Tazewell County Coroner’s Office was notified. Baxter said he was told an autopsy will be scheduled.
