Man found dead in back of semi in Minooka

A Missouri man was found dead in the trailer of his semi-truck on Thursday afternoon at a gas station in the 17000 block of Ridge Road in Minooka.

Kendall County Coroner Jacquie Purcell confirmed Kevin Kealey, 64, had not completed his delivery, his company saw that the GPS on his truck indicated it had not moved for a day and so they called the police.

When authorities arrived, they found Kealey pinned by several 8-foot long boards of plywood in the trailer. Kealey was likely attempting to rearrange the contents of the trailer when they fell on him.

Purcell said the cause of death was likely some sort of traumatic asphyxiation.
