Bill named for former ISU graduate student passes through Illinois senate
Would require notification of the FBI anytime human remains go unidentified for at least 72 hours.
(25 NEWS) - The “Justice for Jelani Day” group is celebrating some movement today in the General Assembly that would get the FBI involved sooner in similar cases.
A senate bill named for the former Illinois State University grad student just passed through that chamber.
If it does get through the House and become law, it would require notification of the FBI anytime human remains go unidentified for at least 72 hours.
A joint task force is still working the Jelani Day case, who went missing 6 months ago and was found dead in the Illinois River in September.
