Body found in Mississippi River identified as missing U of M student


A body pulled from the Mississippi River in St. Paul this week has been identified by a medical examiner as David Miller, a 20-year-old U of M student who disappeared last week.

A statement from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner says the cause of Miller's death is still being investigated, with the U of M police and the Hennepin County Sheriff's office also involved.

Miller, who was from St. Peter, was a student in the College of Biological Sciences.

Danita Brown Young, vice provost for student affairs and dean of students, called it "a difficult and sad time for our University community" and said counseling and support services are available.
