A body found frozen Tuesday morning in Bolingbrook has been identified as that of a Geneva man who went missing in November after being released from a hospital.

The investigation of the cause of death of Jeffrey Talley, 50, is being conducted by the Bolingbrook Police Department and Will County Coroner’s Office.

Talley had last been seen about 6 p.m. Nov. 10 at Remington Boulevard and Veterans Parkway in Bolingbrook, just after he was released from Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital, Geneva police said at the time.

A land surveyor found him Tuesday morning near a frozen pond in a vacant lot in the 1000 block of Windham Parkway, the Will County Coroner’s office said.

A tattoo comparison and a hospital ID bracelet helped authorities identify the body as that of Talley, according to police and the coroner’s office.

An autopsy Friday showed signs of cold exposure, but the final cause and manner of his death will be determined pending police and toxicological testing,

Bolingbrook police are investigating the matter.
