Keaton Patrick Murphy's body found


University police say that a young man's body found in a train boxcar near TCF Bank Stadium today is that of Keaton Patrick Murphy. 

The U of M student went missing after he was arrested Thursday on suspicion of distributing child pornography.

Murphy was released from the Hennepin County jail at about 7:15 p.m. that night--the last time anyone saw the 20-year-old from Iowa alive. His parents told authorities their son suffered from depression in the past and may have been suicidal.

Rail workers found his body this morning.
