The Cook County Medical Examiner's office today (Nov. 17) notified Northwestern University that the body of a man found yesterday in Lake Michigan was that of Northwestern University student Trevor J. Boehm.

Boehm, 20, a first-year student from Monument, Col., had been reported missing last Sunday (Nov. 9). On Thursday (Nov.13), his jacket, which contained Trevor's Northwestern identification card, keys, and cell phone, was found among the rocks on the shore of Lake Michigan on Northwestern's Evanston campus.

"Our hearts go out to Trevor's family and our thoughts are with them at this time," said Northwestern University President Henry S. Bienen. "The death of one of our students affects the entire Northwestern community. We join the Boehm family in mourning the loss of Trevor."

Boehm was a student in Northwestern's School of Communication and involved in theater productions on campus.

Members of the Northwestern University Counseling and Psychological Services staff have been notified and are available to students.
