MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Authorities said Monday a body found in the water on Sunday in the northeast area of Rochester is that of a college student who was reported missing last month.
Authorities found a body at about 7 p.m. Sunday floating in the water on the 4600 block of East River Road NE. The body was taken to the Southern Minnesota Regional Medical Examiner’s Office in Rochester for identification and an autopsy.
The body was identified as 21-year-old William “Harry” Harrison Hempy. Hempy had been reported missing to the Rochester Police Department on March 26 and was last heard from the day before. Hempy had spoken to his father via cell phone and told him he would not be home in time for a scheduled outing because he was going out for a run.
Authorities said the results of the autopsy are still pending, but foul play is not suspected.
