Reddit apologized for the ‘dangerous speculation’ on the site that pointed fingers at the student.
A body pulled from the water off Indian Point Park in Rhode Island has been identified as the Brown University student mistakenly linked by amateur sleuths on a social media site to the Boston bombings.
Health Department spokeswoman Dara Chadwick said Thursday that the body of Sunil Tripathi was identified through dental records.
It was not immediately clear when Tripathi, who was last seen March 15, died. The cause of death has also not been determined.
Tripathi’s body was found Tuesday by members of the Brown University crew team.
