Body found in river identified as Kendallville man
The Allen County coroner confirmed that the body of a man found in the St. Joseph River on Monday is Riley Allen Homister, 45, of Kendallville, thought to have run into the river to flee a police chase Saturday.
According to a Fort Wayne Police Department report, the driver of a Pontiac fled police when officers patrolling for intoxicated drivers signaled for him to pull over on North Clinton. According to the report, the car did not have a working headlight.
The driver led police on a chase, even though the Pontiac had two flat tires, until he pulled the car up to the side of Spy Run Avenue Extended. Read more

I am very saddened by this news. Riley (Mickey) was my First Cousin. His Mother and my Father are siblings. I have not seen Mickey for 20 some years, but I will always remember him as being a sweet man. He would keep me company while I was babysitting other cousins. We would laugh and joke and always have a good time. I wish I had kept in touch better through the years, but I left Indiana when I was 16, and have been living in Arizona since. I have missed all of my family in Indiana, but Mickey was special, and his loss has left me very sad, and wishing I had a chance to see him one last time. I pray that God will strenghten and comfort my Aunts and Uncles and all of my cousins who are devastated by this and that He will give them the comfort and peace that only He can provide. If any of my family reading this would like to contact me, please email me at [email protected]
with my deepest sympathy,
Michaele (Holliday) Lee
