A body found in the California Aqueduct in Fresno was positively identified Thursday as a young woman with a “diminished mental capacity” who disappeared last month after being last seen with a man who is now the subject of a murder warrant.

The body of 20-year-old Megan Troen was discovered on the morning of July 30 by workers near W. Nees Avenue and the 5 Freeway, according to a news release from the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office.

Troen was last seen on the evening of July 20 leaving her home in Tracy with Keleo Schreiner, the release stated.

When Troen failed to return home, her family filed a missing person’s report the next morning. Troen had a diminished mental capacity and functioned at a lower level than a normal 20-year-old person, according to the release.

On Thursday, officials issued a murder warrant for Schreiner. The 21-year-old is known to frequent many areas across in the state, including West Covina, Baldwin Park, Pittsburg (east of Oakland), Tracy, Stockton and Sacramento, authorities stated.

He may be driving a 2001 black Lexus IS 300 with a California license plate of 6SLZ045, the release stated.

Schreiner was described as being 6 feet tall and weighing 300 pounds.

He has a small tattoo of a rifle above his right eyebrow, the letters “LV” tattooed on his right cheek, a microphone tattooed on his neck and several tattoos on both of his forearms.

Schreiner may be armed, so the public was warned not to approach him.
