    An autopsy on Loyola University employee and MBA student found in Belmont Harbor Thursday was inconclusive.

    Emergency personnel recovered the body of Christopher Evans, 25, of the 8800 block of South Richmond Street in Evergreen Park, from Belmont Harbor about 9 a.m. Thursday, authorities said. Evans was last seen about 1:30 a.m. Sunday in the Lakeview neighborhood running in the direction of Lake Michigan.

    A Friday autopsy was inconclusive, "pending further studies," according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office. A spokeswoman did not respond to a request for more information on the investigation.

    Evans’ friends told police they last saw him after going to Roscoe’s Tavern in the 3300 block of North Halsted Street. They said he seemed very agitated and was not acting like himself. He was last seen running east on Roscoe Street from Halsted.

    Evans was a part-time student at Loyola University, where he was enrolled in the MBA program in the Quinlan School of Business, according to the university. He was also a financial analyst at Loyola in the Financial Services office.
