Relatives of Dyquain Rogers are demanding a complete autopsy after the coroner said the death was likely a suicide, according to GoErie.com.
“I don’t believe any of this stuff,” aunt Erica Jeffries-Jordan told the news website. “I want answers.”
Rogers was last seen in the same house where he was found, which is also where he lived, Erie County Coroner Lyell Cook told the news website. Rogers was reported missing on Nov. 4, 2014.
The body was in the Erie home for the last two years, the coroner said. “There was no evidence of murder or foul play,” he told GoErie.com.
However, his aunt said Rogers aspired to join the Navy or become an EMT and would never think about suicide.
“He had dreams to go great places and do great things,” she told GoErie.com. “That is not like someone who is going to throw their life away.”
Rogers’ grandmother called the cops at approximately 1 p.m. on Wednesday after finding the body when she heard “a thump,” according to the news website.
“I fell on my knees when I found out,” Jeffries-Jordan told GoErie.com. “I have been looking for Dyquain for so long. It really hurt me bad.”
What a terrible discovery in the middle of the holidays. We pray this family is able to find peace.
