Autopsy Reveals Cause Of Saline County State’s Attorney’s Death

(HARRISBURG, IL) — A preliminary autopsy report shows Saline County State’s Attorney Mike Henshaw died from a fatal cervical spine fracture consistent with a fall near the stair case at his home Wednesday night. That’s according to information released Friday by Saline County Coroner Jerry Watson. Watson says no foul play is suspected in the case, but since Henshaw was a retired judge and current state’s attorney, a full investigation is being done between the coroner’s office, Harrisburg Police Department and Illinois State Police. The autopsy was performed by Pathologist Dr. James Jacobi at the Williamson County Morgue.
