Vigil held for man found dead in RV compartment

Friends and family of a missing man whose body was found in a recreational vehicle gathered in Anoka to mourn his death.

About 150 people attended a vigil Sunday night near the Northstar commuter rail station where 22-year-old Kevin Casserly was last seen back in November. Searchers had regularly gathered to look for Casserly, the father of two children, ages 4 and 6.

Casserly’s body was discovered Thursday night in Winona by a group of men who had rented the RV to drive to the Kentucky Derby. The RV had been stored near the rail station. His body was found in an exterior storage compartment.

The Star Tribune reports the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office is expected to have more information on Casserly’s death Monday or later.
