The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office late today notified Northwestern University that the body of a man found Sunday in Lake Michigan is that of NU student Trevor Boehm.

Boehm, 20, a first-year student from Monument, Col., had been reported missing Sunday, Nov. 9.  On Thursday, his jacket, which contained his 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.
