The search for a man considered a person of interest in the death of his father is over.
The Major Case Squad has confirmed that the body found in a Fairview Heights motel was that of Jarad Daughtrey.
Police had been searching for Daughtrey to question him about his father, David Daughtrey's death. The body of the elder Daughtrey was found in his Swansea home yesterday afternoon.
A cause of death has not been revealed and police say until it is, the father's death is considered suspicious, but has not yet been ruled a homicide.
Police say they found the father's van at the Trailway Motel in Fairview Heights early this morning and made contact by phone with Jarad Daughtrey. But after a period of time with no contact, they entered the room and discovered him dead.
