Examiner Working to ID Body Pulled from India Point

A state medical examiner is examining a body pulled from the water off of India Point in Providence. Providence Police Chief Hugh Clements told Rhode Island Public Radio that police suspect the body may be that of missing Brown University student Sunil Tripathi.  Department of Health spokeswoman Dara Chadwick says it may take a little time to identify the body.

“I can’t really give you a definitive time as to when we might know. I don’t know that we’ll be able to confirm an ID today. But, again, the exam is being done today," said Chadwick.

Tripathi has missing since mid-March. His family have launched a vigorous social media campaign to help find him.
