UIC STUDENT FOUND DEAD AFTER A WEEK IN DORM ROOM
University of Chicago investigating how a dead body remained undiscovered in a dorm for days. A University of Chicago junior was found dead in his dorm room this weekend after students on his floor complained of "foul odors," the Chicago Tribune reports, raising questions of how long his body remained undiscovered. According to the Tribune, Nicholas Barnes had last used his dorm access card eight days before his decomposing body was found Saturday afternoon. UChicago informed students of Barnes' death in an email from the school's Vice President for Campus Life and Student.
