COLLINSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Historic, cast iron signs that once stood outside the oldest cemetery in a southwestern Illinois community are being donated to the Collinsville Historical Museum.
The 100 year old signs were added to Glenwood Cemetery in 1913, but removed in the 1960s.
Now they'll be displayed in the museum, which received them this week.
Museum officials say they're trying to figure out how to hang the rusted and dirty signs that were once black with white lettering.
Glenwood is Collinsville's oldest cemetery and was created by William Collins, who founded the city.
The snow has affected the track surface and Fairmount officials say they need time to make it suitable for thoroughbred competition.
The track will instead open its 2013 season this Friday night March 29th, post time 7:30. .
The death of a man whose body as found in a ditch along a busy Collinsville road is being considered suspicious.
Fox 2 news reports a relative of the victim has identified the body as her missing brother, 23-year-old Anthony Conners of Collinsville. The family reported him missing yesterday morning.
His body was found face down around 6pm yesterday in a water-filled ditch by an off-duty police officer who had been out jogging near Beltline Road and Illinois Route 157.
Police believe the body could have been in the ditch since Sunday. Relatives say Conners was last seen Saturday night leaving a nearby Burger King.
