MACON COUNTY -- State police say information released from a coroner may hurt their investigation. Monday night, the Sangamon County Coroner released the name of a woman whose remains were found in Rochester last month.

She was identified as 43-year old Tracy Trimby, of Decatur. Tuesday, investigators say the information came out sooner than they had hoped. They fear the premature release of information could make it harder to find her killer.
