The search for 26-year-old Kenyan-American, Keegan Oyugi, of St. Bonifacius who has been missing since June 12 has turned into a vehicle accident investigation after his body was recovered in Savage Tuesday morning (June 29).
His car appears to have veered off the highway near Hwy. 13 and Hwy. 101 in Savage. Further investigations are continuing.
Since he went missing, Kenyans in Minnesota in collaboration with Minnesota United, a volunteer search and rescue organization, have been conducting almost daily searches within a five-mile radius of where his cell phone was last pinged the afternoon of June 12.
Lillian Otieno, co-chair of Minnesota Kenyans Association, said in a WhatsApp message to Kenyans who have been helping search for Oyugi “The family has met with Minnetrista Police Department and BCA and they have confirmed that the car found today was Keegan’s car and Keegan was identified as the only occupant in the car. The Hennepin medical examiner’s office has taken over for official identification.”
