Officials: Missing Brown University Student Found In River

Officials Missing Brown University Student Found In River
The Rhode Island Department of Health confirmed the body of a man pulled from the Providence River is that of missing Brown University student Sunil Tripathi.

The medical examiner said the cause of Tripathi’s death is still under investigation but no foul play is suspected.

Tripathi, 22, was last seen on March 16, and his family had been desperately searching for him. His body was found in the water at India Point Park late Tuesday afternoon.

Tripathi was falsely identified on social media as possibly being one of the Boston Marathon bombers, after the FBI released images of the two suspects. His sister told CNN that the family knew he was not involved.
