    An autopsy revealed that a Southern Illinois University student found dead in Carbondale died of hypothermia.

    The body of Pravin Varughese, a 19-year-old sophomore from Morton Grove, was found Tuesday morning in a wooded area in in the Southern Illinois town.

    Police believe he ran into the woods after he got in to an argument with someone who was driving him home from a party.

    About 200 friends and family traveled to Carbondale over the weekend to search for him.
