Authorities in Peoria are now investigating a second missing person incident this week as a homicide.

Peoria Police Department Public Information Officer Amy Dotson said Friday the missing person case of 49-year-old Jeffrey Blevins is now being investigated as a homicide after human remains were located in a vehicle on North Knoxville.

Blevins was first reported missing at around 12:07 p.m. Wednesday in the 8300 block of North Knoxville, said Dotson. Family reported not having heard from him in several days.

Numerous attempts to make contact with Blevins did not produce any results.

Just after 10 a.m. Friday, a detective located the human remains inside a recreational vehicle in the same block Blevins was reported missing.

The identity of the victim is unknown at this time, but a cause of death, as well as the identification of the victim, will be determined by the Peoria County coroner, Dotson said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Peoria Police at 309-673-4521 or anonymously through CrimeStoppers at 309-673-9000.
