Nothing was found Tuesday when police searched an area of the Back of the Yards neighborhood on the South Side after getting a tip about a possible body.
Officers responded to the area at 11:13 a.m. when they were given information that a female’s body might be buried in a grassy area around 46th and Wood streets, according to Chicago Police.
Nothing was found and the search was completed Tuesday night, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said on Twitter about 8:15 p.m. Detectives were working to get more information and determine whether or not the tip was a hoax.
