Keifer Huhman’s body found
On the eve of Good Friday, nearly seven weeks after he went missing, Sr. Airman Keifer Huhman’s body has been recovered along the banks of the C&D Canal. While questions continue to surround his death, his family is thankful to have his body put to rest.
In a post on the Facebook page dedicated to finding Huhman, his father said, “We will be bringing him (Keifer) to Pensacola for his final resting place at Barrancas National Cemetery. Thank you everyone for your support…Thank you everyone in DE who kept looking. Thank you for bringing my son home.”
The young airman was last seen at his apartment on February 7, and his truck, a 1997 Ford Ranger pickup truck was found on the William V. Roth, Jr. Bridge that night with the hood up and emergency flashers on. No one was around the truck.
After weeks of searching with no results, Huhman was declared deceased. In a statement on social media, his father said it was believed that his son fell off the bridge and into the canal, nearly 140 feet. A memorial service was held on March 11 at Dover Air Force Base, where Huhman was stationed. His funeral was held at Barrancas National Cemetery on March 18. Huhman was a 2012 Navarre High School graduate.
