CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) – Police say a body found in a vacant building Monday night is believed to be that of a Cincinnati college student who has been missing for more than a week.
The body was found around 9:00 p.m. Monday in a building that’s being rehabbed, Cincinnati police Lt. Martin Mack tells The Associated Press. He says the Hamilton County coroner is expected to determine if it is Brogan Dulle and the cause of death.
Dulle’s family issued a statement early Tuesday saying they were told the 21-year-old is dead.
Cincinnati Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell tells the Cincinnati Enquirer the building’s landlord found the body hanging in the basement. He says the death appears to be “a self-inflicted act.”
More than 1,000 volunteers helped try to find the University of Cincinnati sophomore who was last seen around 2:00 a.m. May 18 after leaving his apartment to look for his missing cellphone.
