Missing premed Indian boy found – drowned
Harsha Maddula, 18, was last seen leaving the party on Ridge Avenue in Evanston, Ill., at 12:30 a.m., the Chicago Tribune reports…
Family members said he’s never gone missing before and that he’s a sharp-witted straight-A student. Partygoers said he left the gathering with three or four people, and wasn’t visibly intoxicated, according to the Daily Northwestern. So far, there’s no indication of foul play, cops told the paper.
The group eventually arrived at another off-campus party before realizing they lost Harsha on the way. It is not clear how Harsha separated from the group while traveling between the two locations, which are less than eight minutes apart by foot.
Harsha called Weinberg sophomore John Kim at 12:10 a.m. Saturday and asked where Kim was. Kim replied he was still at the party on Ridge Avenue and Harsha said he was “going to see if he could make it over there,” Kim said.
Friends say PARC president Linzy Wagner, a Weinberg sophomore, called Harsha at about 12:35 a.m. and asked where he was. Harsha told her that he was back in his room at PARC, which was not true according to UP. This was the last known contact from Harsha. The friends contacted UP around 6:45 p.m. later that day.
