Just In:Body Found In UK Pond Identified As Missing Nigerian Student Richard PIX

80

> The body found on Monday in the search for missing 19-year-old Nigerian student Richard Okorogheye has been formally identified as his. “Our deepest sympathies are with Richard’s family at this incredibly difficult time,” UK’s Metropolitan Police said in a tweet confirming the tragic news on Wednesday. “They continue to be supported by specialist officers.” Okorogheye left his family home on the evening of March 22 in Ladbroke Grove, West London and was reported missing two days later, police have said. Investigations revealed that he took a taxi to Loughton, more than 22 kilometers from where he lives. Before his disappearance, Okorogheye who lives with sickle cell disease had been shielding, meaning he was not expected to leave home and minimise face-to-face contact for health reasons. “Richard has been on some kind of setting at home and I think that got him depressed in some ways. When you keep someone at home for like one month plus, and with all these things happening, it added to it. I think he got really fed up with the whole thing.” UPDATE: A formal identification has confirmed that a body found in #EppingForest is that of Richard Okorogheye. Our deepest sympathies are with Richard’s family at this incredibly difficult time. They continue to be supported by specialist officers. — Metropolitan Police (@metpoliceuk) April 7, 2021
