Officers with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources say the body of 22-year-old Sean Matti was found Tuesday morning in Lake Freeman, about 20 yards from shore. Autopsy and blood test results were pending.
State conservation officers say the Shoreview, Minn., native was last seen about 5 p.m. Sunday and that friends spent six hours looking for Matti before calling police. The search continued Monday.
Matti had been a walk-on running back with Purdue’s football team since 2007. Athletics director Morgan Burke expressed condolences to Matti’s family and coach Danny Hope called him a “special young man whose positive spirit will be a part of our program forever.”
