  The preliminary autopsy for Daniel O. El shows he was shot 16 times. El was shot in an exchange of gunfire with Peoria Police after he fled a traffic stop.

The adult male skull Peoria County officials discovered in Kingston Mines a month ago is a match with the torso found in Schuyler County last year.

The torso was removed from the Illinois River November 13th. The skull washed ashore off the River in Kingston Mines and was found June 12th.
