Corpse of 21-year-old man missing for two years is found in his grandmother's attic.
The deceased, Dyquain Rogers was 21-year-old reportedly went missing on November 1st, 2014, Huffington Post reports.
Organised searches by neighbours, family and friends had proved futile, as they all pleaded with the public for help in locating Dyquain.
The grandma made the shocking discovery when she heard something fall against her attic door on Wednesday, November 30.
After calling for help at her home, the body was discovered with investigators believing that it was a suicide case.
Speaking with local news station, Coroner Lyell Cook said there were no signs of foul play in Dyquain's death.
However, the mother of the deceased Carol Rogers as well as family friends, say that the discovery came as a shock. They had all hoped that Dyquain had skipped town for the last two years he had been missing.
"I just kept pretending like he just left Erie, so I just kept focusing on that, that he left here, that's what I kept saying," she said.
A neighbour, Cornell Nixon said, "I didn't expect him to be anywhere in this vicinity.
"I just thought when I heard about him missing, I was like 'wow D-Q's gone, where did he go? He seems like he could protect himself," Nixon continued.
Dyquain's last few Facebook posts showed that he had been unhappy although the reasons remain unclear. His last post on October 31st, 2014 read, "I have been having the worst luck lately."
The young man was last seen alive the following day. Investigations are still ongoing in the case but investigators say there is no sign of foul play.
Carol told Erie News Now that she has found some relief and closure since her son's body was found.
