Around 6:30 p.m on Wednesday, December 1, Galena Police Department officers were dispatched to a residence after a subject reported that he had located a deceased person.

When officers arrived at 801 E. 11th St. in Galena, a deceased male was found inside the house. The man was identified as the homeowner, 68-year-old Jerrold L. Brewer.
