Body Of Duke University Student Michael Doherty Found

MA authorities confirmed Monday that a body found in the woods on the afternoon of May 20 was that of Michael Doherty, a Duke student who had been missing for about a week.

Friends of Doherty told police they thought Doherty had planned to cut through the woods to go home even though it was raining heavily and strong winds were moving through the area at the time, Fox25 said.

Doherty was a sophomore engineering student at Duke who was also a fraternity member, Mass Live said.

The Office of Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey sent a press release stating that no foul play is suspected in the 20-year-old MA native's death.

Though a final report has yet to be issued, the DA's office confirmed on Monday that the remains were those of Doherty.

The medical examiner found no signs of foul play or trauma.




The body was discovered only about 200 yards away from the house on Phyllis Street where Doherty was last seen.

"Over the last six days, countless man hours have been spent in the efforts to locate Michael and bring him home to his family", Franklin police said in a statement. Searchers found one of Doherty's shoes and his shirt Sunday in a nearby marshy area.

The Franklin Police Department said in a news release on May 20 that a body was found around 2:30 p.m.in "dense woods and thick underbrush".

Doherty's parents, Nancy and Dan, have been left "devastated" since his disappearance, but have been hopeful he would return home.

Said Morrissey, "The result was not what we had hoped".
