Body Of Missing Cornell Student Discovered

Cornell University Police say the body of a missing student was found Friday morning. 20 year old  Aalaap Narasipua  was recovered by authorities from Fall Creek , just a short distance upstream from Ithaca Falls.  Authorities say the circumstances of his  death are under investigation  but  foul play is not currently suspected.

Vice President for Student and Campus Life  Ryan Lombardi  sent out the following statement to the University Community

Dear Cornell students,

It is with profound sadness that I write with the news that law enforcement search teams have recovered Aalaap Narasipura's body. No foul play is suspected, and a full investigation of the circumstances is underway.

A senior electrical engineering student in the College of Engineering, Aalaap was an ambitious student and was scheduled to graduate early this December. He was active on the Ultimate Frisbee team, enjoyed taking photos, and planned to continue at Cornell to pursue a Master of Engineering degree.

As we all struggle to process Aalaap's death, I encourage you to reach out to others for support and to make use of the resources listed at the bottom of this email. For community members wishing to come together during this difficult time there will be a community support meeting on Friday, May 19, at 4 p.m. in the One World Room, Anabel Taylor Hall.

On behalf of the Cornell University community, I extend our deepest condolences to Aalaap's family and friends as they grieve this tragedy. They are in our thoughts as we all come to grips with the enormity of this loss.

Ryan Lombardi
