CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - The city of Carbondale has provided police records to the mother of a Southern Illinois University student who died in February 2014.

Lovely Varughese tells The (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan (https://bit.ly/25ARewx) she met Friday with city officials and received the records about the death of her son, 19-year-old Pravin Varughese, a criminal justice major from suburban Chicago. He disappeared after a party and his body was found five days later. Police say he had an altercation after taking a ride with someone. He then ran into a wooded area where his body was found.

Mayor Mike Henry says the city wanted to release the records to the family but didn’t get permission until Friday.

Varughese says she won’t comment on the documents until the State’s Attorney Appellate Prosecutor’s office releases a report.
