A body that was pulled from the Providence River Tuesday evening may be that of missing 22-year-old Brown University student Sunil Tripathi, authorities say. Tripathi, who has been missing since March 16, became tangled in the Boston Marathon bombing when Reddit mistakenly touted his name as a suspect in the attack. Providence, Rhode Island, Police Lt. Joseph Donnelly told authorities that it is “very, very possible” the body is Tripathi’s. The philosophy major and musician, called a “thoughtful boy” by his parents, grew up in Pennsylvania.
