by Randy Pierce

Harry T. Hogue, 72, of Belleville, who was reported to have been a frequent customer at the Tow Bar in St. Jacob and missing since Nov. 12, has been found following a crash that apparently resulted in his death.

The St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department issued an announcement that Hogue was discovered Thursday morning, Dec. 14, inside a vehicle at the bottom of a ravine off St. Clair Avenue east of Interstate 255 in unincorporated East St. Louis  

Workers repairing a damaged guardrail had noticed a van overturned in the ditch that was not visible from the roadway then notified law enforcement authorities whose investigation led to the victim and only occupant of the vehicle being identified as Hogue.
