MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The brother of a Wisconsin student discovered dead in Rome says investigators believe he was murdered.

Beau Solomon, a 19-year-old University of Wisconsin-Madison student from Spring Green, had traveled to Rome on Thursday to begin studies at John Cabot University. He disappeared from a bar that same night. On Monday his body was found in the Tiber River.

Cole Solomon, Beau Solomon’s 23-year-old brother, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that investigators believe someone killed him. He says his brother suffered a head wound and was found with blood on his shirt.

What’s more, thousands of dollars were charged to his credit card after his disappearance.

UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank issued a statement Monday saying everyone at the school is saddened by Beau Solomon’s death.
