One woman is dead and an individual has been taken into custody in Fulton County after for homicide.
According to the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to an emergency medical call involving an unresponsive female in the 900-block of East Jackson lot two in Cuba at around 2:40 Sunday afternoon.
Upon arrival to the scene, deputies, Cass-Putman Rescue Squad, and Fulton County EMS provided aid and attempted to resuscitate the victim but she was ultimately pronounced dead at the scene.
An initial investigation determined that the female was a victim of a homicide and a suspect was taken into custody and transported to Graham Hospital for an unrelated medical issue reported at the time of detainment.
However, the Sheriff’s Office says that the investigation of the incident is ongoing at this time.
Assistance was provided by Cass-Putman Rescue, Fulton County EMS, Fulton County Coroner’s Office, and the Illinois State Police.
The sheriff’s office says further information will be released at a later time.
