Blue Island aldermans body pulled from Lake Michigan

The Blue Island City Council met for the first time Tuesday since the death of Alderman Michael Janko. The council observed a moment of silence before starting its work.

Last week, Janko was boating with friends just off the lakefront in Whiting, Indiana when he jumped into the water. Witnesses say he appeared to have trouble, then slipped under the surface.

His body was found several hours later.

Janko's visitation was Tuesday night. A funeral will take place Wednesday morning.
