Officials say 22-year-old Kevin Casserly was reported missing from the city of Anoka. He was last seen Nov. 12.

The Anoka County Sheriff's Department says Casserly's body was discovered Thursday night by a group of people who rented the RV from a private party in Anoka County.

The group smelled a foul odor and pulled off the road in Winona to investigate the source of the smell. They discovered Casserly's body lodged in a compartment of the RV that was accessible only from the outside.
