A man who fell to his death after falling from a waterfall near a suburban Illinois park has been identified as the Caveman, an 8-foot tall male that lives at a remote site.
According to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, the caveman was found Tuesday afternoon by an officer who was searching for a fallen tree.
The man was in the area near the Humboldt County park on the northwest edge of Chicago.
The department says the man’s body was recovered by the DNR’s Lake Michigan division.
The caveman is about 10 feet tall, but was wearing a white tank top, white pants and white shoes, according to the DOR.
