Police were investigating the circumstances surrounding a dead body found in the woods Saturday outside an elementary school in west suburban Batavia.

Officers responded about 6:20 p.m. to a call of an “armed despondent subject” in the woods southwest of H.C. Storm Elementary School, according to a report from Batavia police.
