Who Was Adam Wright?
Adam Wright was a government major at Dartmouth College who had been missing since Monday. Dartmouth President Phil Hanlon sent an email to Dartmouth students and staff on Tuesday afternoon:
“Adam, a government major, will be remembered as a quiet soul and a good friend. We have been in touch with Adam’s family to share our most sincere sympathies during this time of tragic loss.
He was known for his leadership as president of the International Business Council, a student organization at the Dickey Center. Adam was a loyal Beta Alpha Omega fraternity brother and a member of the Dartmouth Humanitarian Engineering group…Our thoughts are with Adam’s family and friends at this time of great sadness [source].”
No causes, motives, or potential suspects have been identified at the time of this writing, but based on the preliminary investigation, there was no foul play involved. An autopsy will be performed later this week in Concord, New Hampshire. Wright was last seen on Dartmouth’s campus shortly after midnight.
Hanlon told students that counselors would be available from 4:00-6:00 P.M. at One Wheelock. Assistance is also available 24-hours a day by calling 603-646-4000.
