Student found dead in University of Chicago dorm room


A University of Chicago student was found dead in his dorm room after complaints of a foul odor in International Hall where the student lived, the Chicago Tribune reported. There is no report of foul play, but students were concerned that someone could go unmissed for such an extended period. University officials said that it had been eight days since the student, Nicholas Barnes, 20, had last used his card key.
