Summary

The body of Harvard biochemist Don Wiley was found last month, 5 weeks after he disappeared while attending a professional meeting in Memphis, Tennessee. The corpse was discovered floating in a Mississippi River tributary in Louisiana, more than 300 miles south of the bridge where Wiley's abandoned car was discovered at 4 a.m. on 16 November. Dental records confirmed the identity of the Lasker Prize winner.
