Families mourn as missing men in grain elevator are confirmed dead

ATCHISON, Kan. — As the van rolled away Monday from Bratlett Grain Co. elevator, 12-year-old Teagan Keil reached in to hand the driver a flower to lay on his father’s body. Even before official word came that Travis Keil and two other missing men were dead from a fireball that exploded through the back of the grain elevator Saturday night, many of the men’s friends and family were ready for the news.
