Nineteen-year-old Yusuf Ahmad’s body was discovered Sunday morning about three miles from campus.  Police say Ahmad was not properly dressed for the sub-zero temperatures.

Meanwhile, coroner Beth Kimmerling says a 20-year-old former ISU student who was found dead over the weekend in an apartment had a blood clot.
