(CHICAGO) - Chicago police say dental records confirm a body found just across the state line from Hammond is that of a missing Eli Lilly sales rep.
28-year-old Nailah Franklin had been missing for nine days. Her car was found in Hammond, and a nude body believed to be hers turned up yesterday in Calumet City, Illinois, near a forest preserve.
An uncle had said the body was Franklin's, but other family members later contradicted him, saying authorities still weren't sure.
Police say an autopsy failed to pin down the cause of death.
