Illinois teen’s body pulled from floodwaters

Authorities have recovered the body of a second teenager who was in a truck that was pulled from floodwaters in central Illinois.
    
In a news release, the Christian County Coroner’s Office says that the body of 18-year-old Brandon M. Mann of Taylorville was spotted and recovered on Sunday morning less than 200 feet from where the truck was found last week.
    
Last Friday, authorities recovered the body of 18-year-old Devan R. Everett near where dive crews found the truck. The teens were reported missing on Monday.
    
The discovery of the second body brings the state’s death toll from the flooding to 10.
