Noah Presgrove's Mom Speaks Out After Officials Reveal Cause of Death, But Say They're Not Investigating as Murder

"I wish he was still here with me," said Kasey Elliot

Noah Presgrove's mom is speaking out after Oklahoma authorities announced they would not be investigating his "blunt force" trauma death as a murder.

Kasey Elliot told ABC affiliate KSWO that she's just looking for "peace" as questions remain about the death of her son, 19, who was found dead last year by a highway patrol trooper on the side of the road, wearing only his shoes.

A newly released medical examiner’s summary report said the teen died of “multiple blunt force injuries," although a box marked "unknown" was checked for the manner of his death.

As the ongoing investigation continues, Elliot says her family is hoping for answers that could explain away the mystery. "Please somebody, please," she told KWSO. "You know, just something, anybody."

His body was found by an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper at 6:18 a.m. local time on Sept. 4, 2023, per the medical examiner’s summary report.

But Dr. Leonardo Roquero — the medical examiner who performed Noah’s autopsy and finalized the case Monday, April 29 — has not determined the manner of the teen’s death.

“The investigation is not over,” Stewart said, noting that both the state highway patrol and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation “continue to investigate” the teen’s death.

Although family members have said they believe there was foul play involved, it remains unclear how Noah became injured and what caused his injuries.

Meanwhile, Noah's mom is remembering him as the "son that everyone would want."

She added, "I know God needed him for some reason, and I wish he was still here with me."
