Yesterday, a dead body was found on top of a Metra Electric Line train inside the Kensington Metra yard at 123rd Street and South Indiana Avenue in West Pullman. It has now been identified as missing British tourist Ademola “Addy” Owolana, 26.
He had been missing since early Sunday. He was last seen leaving the Low Key club, a reggae night club at 11627 S. Michigan Ave. Police and relatives had been searching for him for the last two days. A citizen of the UK, he was in the Chicago area to visit family in Plainfield.
Owolana was drunk when he left the club. One of his relatives, Sheriff Akinoso, said he became aggressive at the club and demanded his car keys, but he would not hand them over because Owolana can’t legally drive in the U.S and he had been drinking. .
He says when Owolana could not get the car keys, he jogged off east on 117th Street and has not been seen since. The body was found by a Metra employee around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday. It appears he was electrocuted on top of the train. Though the train itself was decommissioned and not powered, the lines overhead were powered.
