Metra: Body found near Ravenswood UP North station

Metra trains were delayed Friday evening on the Union Pacific North Line after a body was found near tracks in the Lake View neighborhood on the North Side, authorities said.

A crew member on Train 335 spotted the body about 6:15 p.m. near Barry and Ravenswood avenues between the Clybourn and Ravenswood Metra stations, according to Katie Dahlstrom, a Metra spokeswoman.

The Cook County medical examiner's office did not immediately confirm the death Friday night.

Inbound and outbound trains were running 30-60 minutes behind schedule, the rail service said.

Additional information was not immediately available.
