Body of missing Dartmouth College student found near river
HANOVER, N.H. — Police have recovered the body of a missing Dartmouth College student in a river near the campus.
Wright was last seen on campus shortly after midnight Monday. Police put out a missing-person news release later that day. A Dartmouth employee soon found a backpack along the riverbank, and his body was discovered a half-hour later.
Police do not yet know how Wright died but say a preliminary investigation shows no foul play. An autopsy has been scheduled.
Dartmouth President Phil Hanlon said Wright was a senior studying government and was president of a student-run International Business Council and the Dartmouth Humanitarian Engineering group.
Authorities did not provide a hometown for Wright.
