LITH man found dead near Belvidere

LAKE IN THE HILLS – A 24-year-old Lake in the Hills man was found dead Monday in his car outside of Belvidere.

Kevin R. Zent was found on Spring Center Road, one-fourth mile south of Shattuck Road, the Boone County Coroner’s Office said in a news release.

An autopsy performed Tuesday was inconclusive, the coroner’s office said. Toxicology results are pending.

The death is under investigation by the coroner’s office and Boone County Sheriff’s Office.

Family members contacted authorities Sunday night after Zent failed to show up at someone’s house as planned, said Sgt. Mark Smith of the Lake in the Hills Police Department.

Smith said an alert with a description of his vehicle was sent to other law enforcement agencies. No other information was released.
