Kolajo Afolabi, the Harvard graduate student who went missing on Wednesday, was found dead after suffering a fatal head injury during a morning run.
Afolabi, a 31-year-old doctoral student in the Graduate School of Education at Harvard Univeristy, was reported missing on Wednesday after a run in Providence, R.I.
According to authorities, he was found dead about an hour after he left for his run from an accidental head injury in a fall that led to his death. The Associated Press reported that an investigation regarding Afolabi's death is ongoing, though there has been no suspicious evidence in the apparent cause of death.
Lt. George Stamatakos of Providence told the AP a passerby found Afolabi around 9:45 a.m. shortly after he began jogging.
Bobby Van Druff, long-time partner to Adolabi, said Afolabi did not return any phone calls since his run and launched a search, according to The Harvard Crimson.
Kolajo Afolabi attended Brown University for his undergraduate, and was teaching two courses there as an adjunct professor. Afolabi was expected to graduate in 2012 with a doctorate from the Harvard University Graduate School of Education, where he was editor of the Harvard Educational Review.
