Christopher's family has confirmed that the body recovered is that of their missing relative.
Our condolences go out to the Evans family.
As we reported in our initial story about Christopher's disappearance, since 2010, two other young men who disappeared in the Wrigleyville/Boystown area were eventually found dead in Belmont Harbor.
On May 1, 2010, 22-year-old Roosevelt University student Syed "Zain" Naqi disappeared after spending an evening with friends at Rebel Bar and Grille near Clark and Cornelia in Wrigleyville.
Then, on March 3 of last year, 28-year-old Philip Patnaude went missing after going out for a night of drinking with friends.
The three incidents are not related.
