Body Found Inside Warehouse

Authorities find a body inside a burned-out South Bend warehouse but tonight, they have not identified the remains.

As you know, police think 50-year-old Richard Eakins may have been inside the building when it caught fire.

South Bend Fire Department spent the day sifting through the rubble of the warehouse near Western and Walnut.

They used an excavator to remove debris one bucket at a time and investigators tell us the body was found this morning.

However, there is no word if it is Eakins.
