Northern Illinois University President John G. Peters issued a statement Friday, offering condolences to the family and friends of freshman David Bogenberger:
Our thoughts and prayers are with David’s family and friends as they cope with this difficult loss. Please know that your grief is shared collectively by the NIU community.
Meetings have been held during the day with student leaders and student organizations, and the NIU Counseling and Student Development Center is providing support services to friends, acquaintances and others who may be affected by David’s passing.
The university will work with the DeKalb Police Department and the DeKalb County Coroner in their continuing investigations.
While we attend to those most affected by this tragic event, I ask that we all keep David’s family and friends in our prayers.
