Share/Save/Bookmark

PLATTSBURGH, New York — An autopsy has confirmed that a body found in woods behind a Plattsburgh business was that of a missing 20-year-old college student.

The dead man has been identified as Kodi Beckles of Poughkeepsie. Authorities say they won't be able to rule on the cause and manner of death until toxicology results and their investigation are complete.

Beckles was last seen early Saturday morning at a party. Friends reported him missing Saturday night after he failed to attend a meeting on the Plattsburgh State University campus earlier in the day.

Plattsburgh Police Capt. Michael Branch has said there was no reason to suspect foul play.

A vigil was held on campus Tuesday night in Beckles' honor.
