THE CASE OF DIANA ALEJANDRA KEEL
On March 14, 2019, the Nash County Sherrif's Office in North Carolina revealed that the body of Diana Alejandra Keel, 38, was found. During her disappearance, her husband was the last to see her alive and he is currently considered a person of interest in the case.
Nash County Sherrif Keith Stone revealed that Lynn Keel, Diana's husband, has been brought in to their office for questioning. Her husband was asked to identify her remains after they were found.
A worker for the Department of Transportation discovered her decomposing body in a wooded area just 30 miles from where she disappeared. Her car was found nowhere near her body, as it was parked at home.
The police found out about her disappearance after her employer said she had not reported to work for days. Her husband allegedly said that she "leaves from time to time and will stay gone a couple of days." This is the reason why he failed to tell investigators that she was missing, but the investigators believe that there is foul play involved in her death.
