MMA Fighter David Koenig Remains Found 2 Years After He Went Missing: ‘Finally at Peace,’ Mom Says

The remains of mixed martial artist David Koenig were discovered in Missouri.

Human remains found in a wooded area in Missouri last week have been identified as those of an amateur mixed martial arts fighter who went missing nearly two years ago, authorities said.

The remains of David Koenig were discovered last Wednesday by a man searching for deer antlers in Branson, police said.

A forensic pathologist confirmed the identity of the remains and determined through an examination that foul play was not suspected in Koenig’s death as no trauma was found, according to Branson police.

Koenig’s remains were found on Dec. 22 by a man looking for deer antlers in a wooded area in Branson, located about 250 miles southwest of St. Louis, the Branson Police Department said in a statement. A forensic odonatologist confirmed the remains were Koenig’s on Monday.

A missing person investigation into Koenig has been open since March 2020 and led to search efforts on properties in Missouri’s Taney and Stone counties, and in Boone County, Arkansas, police said.

An examination of Koenig’s remains by a forensic pathologist determined there was no trauma and his death did not appear to be the result of foul play, the department said. Several “other personal artifacts” belonging to Koenig were also found near his remains, they added.

“While this is not the ending we hoped for, we offer our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Koenig,” Branson Police Chief Jeff Matthews said in a statement.

Koenig was last seen on Feb. 8 2020. Since then multiple agencies had been searching for him. Is the most visited news, Trending Topics and current affairs website. All rights reserved to Maria Memon Media Group for all content published on this website.
