An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday for a Tazewell County man whose badly decomposed body was found in a parking garage in Chicago.

Authorities say a maintenance worker found the 53 year old man Monday after smelling a strong odor coming from a minivan.

Authorities say the van was registered in East Peoria, but the man was believed to be from Morton.

Police also say he was wanted on an outstanding warrant in Peoria County for failure to appear in court on a robbery charge.
