UPDATE: A group of men on their way to the Kentucky Derby for a bachelor party made a gruesome discovery after they pulled their rented RV over in Winona: a body was inside the vehicle’s storage compartment.

Authorities say Saturday that the body belongs to 22-year-old Kevin Casserly of Anoka, who has been missing since November. His death is being investigated. Authorities did not plan to release any additional updates Saturday.

Officials say the men rented the RV from a private party in Anoka County.

They were headed to Kentucky when they stopped in Winona. While 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.

WINONA, Minn. (AP) — A group of people renting a recreational vehicle in Anoka County made a startling discovery after pulling off the road to investigate a foul odor.
