Tripathi, 22, had been missing since March 16. He was last seen on surveillance video early that morning, not far from his apartment on Brook Street, near Brown’s campus.

His body was found by members of the school’s crew team in the water near India Point Park, which is a few blocks away from Tripathi’s apartment.
