Grad Student Found Dead in Lake

It's a sad day at Northwestern. Here is the email I received from the University:
A Northwestern University graduate student was found dead in Lake Michigan at approximately 11 a.m. Friday. Hyuk Jin Choi, a graduate student in chemistry, was found in the lake by a person kayaking in the lake near Northwestern’s soccer field Friday. A cause of death has not yet been determined.

Choi was from Dukyang Gu, South Korea. He had been a student at Northwestern since fall 2004.

The University expresses its condolences and deepest sympathies to his family, fellow students and friends.

I certainly hope they find out what happens. If nothing else, I hope it was just an accident and no foul play was involved.

More info as it develops.
