Hassan Aden Found

Here are some more details about Hassan Aden.

On Saturday, a jogger found a body near the Franklin Avenue bridge.  As you can read here, the Medical Examiner has positively identified the body as that of Hassan Aden, the young Somali man who has been missing for over two weeks.  A cause of death has not yet been released, and will be available in another 4-6 weeks.

My heart goes out to Hassan's family.  I can only imagine how difficult it would be to lose a child in this way.  It sounds like he was a wonderful young man, and his loss hurts not just his family but the community as a whole.
