A body recovered Tuesday from the Mississippi River is that of missing Louisiana State University student Kori Gauthier, officials said Wednesday.

LSU Chief of Police Bart Thompson said investigators concluded there was no criminal activity or foul play involved. He cited video footage, cellphone tracking and "other evidence we shared with Kori’s parents that we are not at liberty to disclose publicly out of respect for their privacy."

Gauthier was a freshman at the university in Baton Rouge.
