Body found in Lake Michigan identified as student


The man found dead in Lake Michigan Wednesday has been identified as a 20-year-old University of Chicago student.

Austin Hudson-LaPore disappeared last week. The Cook County medical examiner said he died of drowning and his death was accidental.

The third-year student's family and friends believe he went to the shore to watch storms that hit the area the day he disappeared. He took his final exams that same day.
