A local woman was found Wednesday, deceased, at the Spillway Motel in Shelbyville.

According to a press release from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, “On Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at 2:30 p.m. deputies of the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office were called to the Spillway Motel in Shelbyville in regards to an unresponsive female in one of the rooms.

“Upon arrival, deputies found Jean A. Eigenheer, 51, deceased. Upon further investigation, including a preliminary report from the pathologist, it was determined that the cause of death was natural and not suspicious.

“Shelby County Coroner’s Office and the Illinois State Police Crime Scene Services assisted the Sheriff’s Office with the investigation.”

The Illinois State Police Crime Scene Services respond from Effingham and the pathologist is located in Bloomington. Sources say that Eigenheer had been living at the Spillway for about six months.

Shelby County Coroner Brian Green said that the final ruling will be given after the full report is finished by the pathologist.
