MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The University of Minnesota says the body of a young man found near the Mississippi River in Minneapolis was that of a freshman.
 
Minneapolis Police said in a news release that officers responded to a 911 call on Sunday morning about an unresponsive person on the riverbank just east of the Stone Arch Bridge. Police said foul play wasn't suspected and that the death was being investigated.
