The mystery sorrounding the disappearance of Ademola Mohammed Owolana, the son of popular Lagos socialites, Debo and Bola Owolana, ended in tragedy, when his body was found last night.
It’s not clear how the body of Ademola Owolana, 26, ended up on top of a retired Metra Electric rail
His body found at the Metra Electric Kensington Rail Yard in Chicago’s West Pullman neighborhood.
A family spokesperson confirmed this sad development.
It’s not clear how the body of Owolana, 26, ended up on top of a retired Metra Electric rail car.
The young man from London was in Chicago with his mother, Bola Owolana to visit relatives.
Crisis responder Andrew Holmes spent time tonight consoling Owolana’s grieving mother.
“I really, really didn’t want to turn out this way,” Holmes said. “She didn’t want to take her son back home like this.”
Owolana was last seen early Saturday morning leaving a club in West Pullman after a night of drinking. The family said he took off on foot when a relative wouldn’t give up the car keys.
His loved ones had been on a desperate search ever since. That search ended Tuesday afternoon when his body was found in the Kensington Rail Yard, not far away from where he disappeared.
“We have to leave that up to the detectives and the medical examiners to determine what, when and how long he’s been there and how it exactly happened,” Holmes said.
Investigators are ruling out foul play, but many questions remain. Police hope to get some answers from surveillance cameras in the area.
A cause of death has not been determined.
