Police found Margaret “Maggie” Mbitu’s body in a vehicle at Logan Airport’s Central Parking garage Wednesday night. She was reported missing Monday.

Authorities are working to track down a Lowell man who they believe killed a woman whose body was found in a Logan Airport parking garage Wednesday night, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office. 

Officials have obtained a warrant for the arrest of 40-year-old Kevin Kangethe for the killing of 31-year-old Whitman resident Margaret Mbitu, the DA’s office said in a press release Thursday. Police had been searching for Mbitu since Monday when her family reported her missing. 

Around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Massachusetts State Police troopers found Mbitu’s body inside a vehicle in Logan Airport’s Central Parking garage. “Evidence indicates that she was the victim of a homicide,” the DA’s office wrote.
