ROCKFORD — A body was found Friday morning in the 5400 block of East State Street but the death does not appear to be suspicious, Winnebago County Coroner Bill Hintz said.

The body appears to be that of a homeless person, Hintz said. There are no signs of trauma.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday. No details about the person are being released at this time.

The body was found near an empty building that formerly housed Circuit City.
