A body pulled from the water just offshore in a Providence, R.I., park was that of Sunil Tripathi, a Brown University student missing since last month.
Tripathi was identified through a forensic dental exam. He was just 22.
A cause of death has not been determined, but the news puts an end to the mystery of his disappearance, which became doubly painful for his family.
Amateur online sleuths wrongly identified him as a possible suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings. Of course, this turned out not to be the case.
