The 22-year-old student's body was found today by members of the Brown crew team in waters off India Point Park. Relatives of Sunil Tripathi, who's from Bryn Mawr, Pa, had been searching for him with help from the FBI and Brown students since mid-March.
His family says he had been on leave from the Ivy League school and was living with classmates in Providence.
