PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The Rhode Island medical examiner's office says a body found in Providence is that of a Brown University student missing since last month.
Health Department spokeswoman Dara Chadwick says the body of 22-year-old Sunil Tripathi was identified Thursday morning through a forensic dental exam. The cause of death has not been determined.
According to CBS News, last week false speculation emerged on social media erroneously linking him to the Boston Marathon bombings.
Tripathi's family says in a statement they feel "indescribable grief" but are grateful for the outpouring of support.
Tripathi's body was found Tuesday by members of the Brown crew team in waters off India Point Park. Relatives of Tripathi, who's from Bryn Mawr, Pa., had been searching for him with help from the FBI and Brown students since mid-March.
He had been on leave from the Ivy League school and was living with classmates in Providence.
