A 26-year-old Kenyan man, Keegan Oyugi based in Minnesota, US, has been found dead for weeks after two weeks of disappearance.

He was a single-vehicle crash victim in the south metro, the Minnetrista Police Department said in a Tuesday report according to CBS Minnestoa.

His Ford Mustang was found off Highway 101 in Savage. Police say his description matches every detail about the deceased from his looks to how he was dressed before missing.

“As we await formal identification from the medical examiner’s office, our thoughts and prayers go out to the Oyugi family,” the police department said.

Police found the wreck moments after reports were made of a red car in wrecks sitting on a copse of trees.

Police closed westbound lanes of the highway in the south metro area.

Oyugi was last seen in Prior Lake-Savage Area.

He was never seen home despite sending his brother a message indicating that he would be in early Saturday morning.

Mshale, the African community newspaper, reported that his phone was last tracked at Prior Lake near his St Bonifacius home in Chaska.

The deceased worked near the community near Crown College, where he graduated two years ago. He was a star basketball player and worked for the college’s program.

Stacy Ingraham who worked closely with Oyugi when he played for Crown described him as a “happy and simple guy.”

Oyugi was known for his basketball exploits in Minnesota after his graduation at Crown College where he joined in 2017 from Neosho County Community College in Kansas.

He attended Wichita Southeast High School.

His parents, Richard and Mirriam Onkunya reside in Wichita, Kansas City.
