Missing Drexel Student's Death Ruled Suicide

The medical examiner says suicide is the cause of Stevens Glemaud's death. Glemaud disappeared on Saturday. His body was found in the Schuylkill River on Monday

A missing Drexel student whose body was found Monday in the Schuylkill River, killed himself, according to Philadelphia's medical examiner.

The suicide ruling on Stevens Glemaud's death was issued on Wednesday.

Glemaud's parents reported him missing on Saturday. They'd come down from West Orange, New Jersey to pick him up at the end of school and he was nowhere to be found.

Surveillance video showed Glemaud, 18, in his dorm around 6:15 a.m. Saturday morning, but friends told the family they had no idea where Glemaud had gone.

On Monday, Glemaud's body was found in the Schuylkill River near Kelly Drive and Boathouse Row.

Glemaud's sister told NBC10 on Monday that her brother may have been stressed out about his school work. She said that for him to just disappear -- that type of behavior -- was very unlike him.

Drexel University put out this statement regarding Glemaud’s death earlier this week:

University officials have been in contact with Glemaud’s family and conveyed their sincere condolences on behalf of the Drexel community. In a close-knit community like Drexel, the death of a fellow student is deeply felt. Drexel’s Counseling Center is offering its services to members of the community who have been affected by this tragic event.
