    Body found on campus is confirmed as Jon Lacina

    Jon Lacina's body discovered Wednesday, family confirms

    Jon Lacina's brother, Joe, said the body discovered Wednesday has been identified as his brother, missing ISU student Jon Lacina.

    Joe said Thursday that his family had been informed of the identity of the body. ISU police and the university news service said they could not confirm the identification because the state medical examiner has yet to confirm the body's identity.

    Joe said Thursday afternoon the body found at the Dairy Pavilion south of campus was his brother's. After nearly three months, an ISU police officer found the body while searching the brick building at around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday.

    The officer was examining remote areas of a property south of campus, southwest of the intersection of Mortensen Road and Hayward Avenue. The site is approximately one mile south of Central Campus.

    Lacina was last seen Jan. 22 leaving 300 Stanton Ave. at approximately 9:30 p.m. His father, Tom, reported him missing to ISU Police Jan. 31.

    Law enforcement continued daily searches and investigative efforts throughout the last three months, including extensive searches of snow piles and Lake LaVerne.

    Rest in peace, Jon. So sad this story had to end this way, but at least now hopefully his family can have some closure.

    It will be interesting to see what details emerge.

    We lived just south of there on Hayward until September last year.

    not trying to bash the op but why does new info need it's own thread, if people see it at the top of the main page they will more than likely click on it and if they are smart enough they will just jump to the last page find out what's going on and if they want they can go back through the rest of it.

    Consider this the Post Game thread to the Official Game Thread. You never complain about those do you?

    So sad. Thoughts and prayers for the family. I can't even imagine the strong, mixed emotions they're going through right now.

    I am going to say that he took his own life. Walking back to his dorm he would have been on main streets on campus, if someone jumped out of a car to get him someone would have seen that.

    Probably not very good feelings, but at least there can be closure now.

    Not even remotely close to true, especially if he was threatened.

    I'm pretty sure the Taliban were involved somehow.

    I'm not sure, but I think the main reason is so that it gives people like you something to complain about. I could be wrong though...

    A kid was just found dead, get over yourself man.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Sad. hopefully the family can find some kinda peace now.
    Weird thing when something like that happens is how many times you drive by that place. And to think he's been there this whole time.
