November 22, 2013 (BUFFALO GROVE, Ill.) -- A woman's body was found Friday morning on the Metra tracks near northwest suburban Buffalo Grove.
The engineer of the No. 110 Metra North Central line train, bound for Chicago, spotted the body on another track just after 7:30 a.m. and contacted police, Metra spokeswoman Meg Reile said.

The victim had been struck by an unknown train and was pronounced dead at the scene, the sheriff's office said.
