Missing Wisconsin college student Beau Solomon found dead in Rome
Beau Solomon, 19, was last seen late Thursday night drinking with friends at a bar. When his friends went to leave, they could not find him and alerted authorities when he didn't turn up for orientation at Cabot the next day.
Solomon's body was found in the Tiber River with a head wound. Police have opened up a murder investigation, although it is possible he fell.
His parents arrived in Italy Monday morning. They say his credit cards had been used since he disappeared.
"We express our most heartfelt condolences to the Solomon family and to all those who loved Beau," John Cabot University posted on their website.
