Missing Point Student's Body Found in River


Authorities have confirmed that a body removed from the Wisconsin River in Stevens Point was that of a missing U-W-S-P student.


Rescuers pulled the body of 21-year-old Eric Duffey of Fitchburg from the river yesterday. Police said Duffey was found in open water, not far from where he was last seen alive. Police said Duffey disappeared while walking home from a downtown bar early last Saturday, where he had celebrated his birthday. Officials said they later learned that he walked into the river – and alcohol may have been the reason. Police do not suspect foul play.
