A man who had been missing from Stillwater was found dead on Christmas Eve. George Musser, a 20-year-old man, was last observed leaving Brian’s Bar & Grill, located at 219 Main St. S. in Stillwater, at 2:20 a.m. on Christmas Eve. He was not wearing a coat. His family spent the weekend seeking for him with assistance from the neighborhood.
The Stillwater Police Department posted on its Facebook page on Sunday evening that “George was found dead in Baytown Township at about 7 p.m. “We informed George’s family. There isn’t any other information at this time because the matter is still being investigated. We are appreciative of everyone who helped search for George on Christmas Day. The search and investigation were assisted by the Stillwater Fire Department, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, the Oak Park Heights Police Department, the Minnesota State Patrol, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Please respect the family’s need for privacy during this trying time.
A late Sunday news statement from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office stated that a body resembling Musser’s had been discovered in Baytown Township, close to the 5400 block of Osgood Avenue North, roughly two miles from the center of Stillwater.
According to the report, the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office is conducting an inquiry.
Heidi Kram, a relative who created the GoFundMe account, stated, “This is not what we prayed for.” “We are aware that George is in heaven, and that until we can see him again, God and every member of George’s family in heaven will look after him. To assist his family with the cost of his funeral, we are pooling our resources.
A Facebook group called Find George Musser was started over the weekend to discuss updates regarding the man’s disappearance.
On that page, Musser’s family claimed that although his ID had been recovered, it had been confirmed that his wallet had been discovered in a snowbank close to the Freight House at 305 Water St. S. in downtown Stillwater. His keys were reportedly discovered close to a garbage can at Brian’s Bar, and his automobile was supposedly parked in the Freight House parking lot.
The distance between Brian’s and the Freight House is around two minutes.
On Sunday about 11:30 a.m., residents of the area began looking for Musser. Hundreds of people reportedly headed to the Stillwater riverfront east of the Freight House to search, according to a Facebook post. People in downtown Stillwater complied with Nancy Musser’s request to search their garages, sheds, and vehicles.
