After his disappearance nearly three weeks ago, the body of 21-year-old David "DJ" Brooks Jr. of Muhlenberg County was found over the weekend.
According to a missing person flyer, 21-year-old David "DJ" Brooks Jr. had been missing since April 8 from Graham, Kentucky, after he was last seen walking on Harp's Hill Rd.
After over two weeks had passed since Brooks Jr. went missing, a candlelight vigil was held on Saturday in an effort to fuel the search to find him.
Brooks Jr.'s aunt, who started a GoFundMe to help give her nephew a proper funeral, said that his body was recovered the next day on Sunday, April 25. The Muhlenberg County Sheriff's Office says Brooks Jr.'s body was found on Sunday during a scheduled search of the area near Pond River.
Brooks Jr. was born in Muhlenberg County on June 30, 1999, and worked as a construction worker. He also attended The Ark of Safety Church.
The sheriff's office says no foul play is suspected at this time. Brooks Jr.'s official cause of death has yet to be released, pending the coroner's report.
