Sycamore- It will be Monday before investigators know more about how Gregonor Wallace died. Investigators say, they found the 30-year-old man's body Saturday afternoon along State Route 41 just outside Sycamore.

On Monday, Wallace's Monte Carlo was found in a drive way also along 41 with the hood up, the window down, and the keys in the ignition.

The Sheriff's department says, there were no visible signs of trauma and Wallace's family say they're just happy to have some closure.

"At this time we see nothing suspicious on the body, no gunshot wounds, no stabs, no cuts, anything like that," said Turner County Sheriff Randy Kendrick.

"It is some kind of comfort, knowing that the mystery of it is over. I thought we might not ever get any answers, it was just too mysterious, but I thank the Lord they found him," said Tonya Wallace, Gergonor's sister.

Police say, Wallace's body will be taken to the crime lab to determine an exact cause of death.
