A Kenyan who went missing in the US has been found dead.
The body belonging to Keegan Oyugi, 26, was found by Minnetrista Police in a crashed vehicle along Highway 13 in Savage, Minnesota, on Tuesday, June 30.
The police said they responded after a resident reported seeing a badly damaged red car in a copse of trees.
Mr. Oyugi was found buckled in the driver’s car seat, and he was the only occupant in the vehicle.
The deceased family has confirmed via a Facebook post that the vehicle discovered was Keegan Oyugi’s car.
“The Hennepin medical examiner’s office has taken over for official identification. We request at this time you continue to pray for the Oyugi family and ask for privacy for the family – this is a really difficult and sad time for them, so let’s keep that in mind and allow them some space and time,” the family said.
The basketballer who went missing more than two weeks ago was last seen in the Prior Lake-Savage Area, according to Mshale news. He put on a striped red and white shirt with one blue stripe, dark blue jeans, and red and black shoes.
His friends reported that on the day he went missing, he sent a text message to his brother saying he was heading home in St. Bonifacius but never made it.
Oyugi was a graduate of Wichita Southeast High School. Until his death, he was playing basketball at Neosho County Community College in Kansas.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
