Reddit apologized for the 'dangerous speculation' on the site that pointed fingers at the student.
A body pulled from the water off India 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. The body of 22-year-old Sunil Tripathi was identified through dental records, Health Department spokeswoman Dara Chadwick said Thursday. It was not immediately clear when Tripathi, who was last seen March 15, died. The cause of death has also not been determined. Police said that no signs of trauma were found initially and that the investigation could take months. Tripathi's body was found Tuesday by members of the Brown University crew team.
Well done Redditors...
