PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia police have confirmed that a body pulled from the Schuylkill River Monday afternoon is that of a Drexel University Student who went missing on Saturday.
Rescue crews pulled the body from the area of Boathouse Row and the Water Works around 5 p.m., and a few hours later, they confirmed that it was the body of 18-year-old Steven Glemaud. Glemaud had just wrapped up his freshmen year at Drexel and was set to have his family pick him up from the University on Saturday morning to return to his northern New Jersey home for the summer.
Glemaud was last seen leaving his dorm in the early morning hours on Saturday. He was reportedly at a party the night before and had returned a few hours before surveillance video caught him leaving. He was not seen again until his body was discovered in the Schuylkill.
An autopsy has been scheduled to determine an exact time of death, but as of right now, authorities are classifying the death as a drowning.
