His body was found hanging by a rope from a tree on January 9 in a wooded area of Lake Stevens. Six weeks went by in between Keita's disappearance - he went missing without personal items such as his cell phone, auto or wallet - and his body being found, weeks after search and rescue combed the area. Yet he disappeared seemingly without explanation in late November, and now here was his body, found by a passerby January 9, dangling from a long rope tied to a high branch. His death was initially ruled a suicide, although the medical examiner for Snohomish County now says his death is "inconclusive".

The death of Ben Keita, 18, was initially ruled a suicide.
"We are careful not to rush to judgment", Rev. Kele Brown, of the Plymouth Congregational Church in Seattle, said.
"The family believes that with a comprehensive investigation, with every lead and every avenue explored, we can find the reasons for how this all happened", Bukhari added.
The death is suspicious and probably the work of a hate crime.
"He was planning to graduate this year from Lake Stevens High School", Ben Keita's father said, according to Seattle radio station KUOW. "Historically lynchings were often deemed quickly as suicide without the benefit of thorough inquiry".
