A body of a man in his 20's pulled from Lake Michigan yesterday may be that of missing Northwestern student Travis Boehm. Boehm has been missing since November 9 and late last week, searchers found his jacket and other personal items on a Lake Michigan beach near the Northwestern campus. The body was found about six miles south of where the personal items were found. An autopsy was scheduled at the Stein Institute and police also hope to make a positive identification of the body today.
