Body is Discovered in Derby-Bound RV Rental
A group of men on their way to the Kentucky Derby for a bachelor party made a surprising discovery after they pulled their rented RV over in southeastern Minnesota: a body inside the vehicle’s exterior cargo compartment.
The Associated Press reported that authorities confirmed Saturday (May 3) that the body is that of an Anoka, Minn., man who has been missing since November. The Anoka County Sheriff’s Office said the death of Kevin Casserly, 22, is being investigated, and no additional updates were being released on Saturday.
Officials say the men rented the recreational vehicle from someone in Anoka County on Thursday, and they headed south.
Jake Wanek, of Minneapolis, was a part of the bachelor party and said the men pulled over in Winona to pick up the last members of their group. While they were there, they began investigating a foul odor and found Casserly’s body lodged in a compartment of the RV that was accessible only from the outside.
Wanek told the Star Tribune that one of the men opened and closed a front compartment, which stirred up the odor. The men opened the compartment on the other side and saw the body, with bare feet and pants on.
