A body found in Lake Michigan has been identified as missing University of Chicago student Austin LaPore, investigators said.
"The family of Austin Hudson LaPore positively identified his body earlier today," an official with the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office told ABC News.
LaPore's father, Gregg LaPore, was with the recovery team when his son's body was discovered.
"He is still in the grieving process, totally shaken by the discovery of this body," family spokesman Andrew Holmes told WLS-TV before the body's identification was confirmed. "He is in shock, wants to be close to his family, but he did think that it is good to have friends that he never knew, which is us, working with him, the media working with him. It brings him some comfort."
Police will conduct an autopsy Thursday to determine the cause of death,Read More »from Body of Missing Chicago Student Found in Lake Michigan

Remember when Tupac made an appearance at last year's Coachella festival? It wasn't really Tupac but a holograph of the late rapper.
The holograph wasn't like watching a regular 3D TV image. You didn't need glasses, it was viewable to the entire audience, no matter what angle they were watching at, and it wasn't just a projected two dimensional image. It looked like Tupac was really on stage.
The engineers of the Object-Based Media Group at the MIT Media Lab, led by V. Michael Bove Jr. and his graduate student Dan Smalley, are working on technology that might enable that experience in your living room. The group is aiming to make true holographic videos not only a reality, but an affordable reality.
Sure, there have been other types of glasses-free 3D screens and devices, including the Nintendo 3DS handheld gaming system or various 3D TVs shown by Vizio and Toshiba, but those have suffered from poor viewing angles, causing the image to be distorted when you move off the right orRead More »from Forget 3DTVs: MIT Group Working to Bring Holographs to Your Living Room

Hitman John Martorano admitted on the stand today that he lied to his best friend before he shot him in the back of the head.
"I couldn't tell him I was going to shoot him," Martorano told the court of the murder of John Callahan, a close friend for decades who was murdered, the hitman testified, because Bulger "insisted on it."
It was one of several lies that lawyers from accused Boston mobster James "Whitey" Bulger elicited from Martorano, a key prosecution witness in Bulger's trial for 19 murders and other crimes.
Under cross examination by defense lawyer Hank Brennan, Martorano conceded he had previously lied about his partnership with Bulger.
And he lied to Massachusetts State Trooper Tom Foley about details regarding the murder of Edward Connors, who was gunned down in a phone booth in 1975, Brennan pointed out.
"I recanted that," Martorano retorted.
Brennan asked Martorano what the government told him about his plea deal.
"I was told that if I ever told a lie I would goRead More »from "Whitey" Bulger Implicated in 13 Murders by Confessed Hitman

Court documents and FBI field reports reviewed by ABC News undercut and contradict the dramatic testimony from senior counter-terrorism officials that the National Security Agency's surveillance programs thwarted an attack by al Qaeda on the New York Stock Exchange.
According to an FBI interview with an imprisoned al Qaeda figure involved in the plot, "there was no further operational planning of that target" after surveillance found the four streets around the exchange building "were blocked off from vehicular traffic."
The FBI document was filed last month in federal court in New York as part of the government sentencing memorandum for one of the alleged plotters, Sabirhan Hasanoff, who is to be sentenced next week.
But the FBI deputy director, Sean Joyce, provided Congress with a different version of events Tuesday as he cited the stock exchange plot as one of more than 50 "terror events" that had been disrupted with the help of the NSA's secret surveillance programs.

More charges could be added to the 329-count indictment against alleged Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro, who appeared in court today for a brief pre-trial hearing.
"We are presenting additional evidence to the grand jury next week and week after. We expect that we are going to request further indictments," Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty said today.
A tentative Aug. 4 trial date was set today for Castro, who was indicted earlier this month for allegedly kidnapping Gina DeJesus, Amanda Berry and Michelle Knight and imprisoning them, sometimes restrained by chains, in his Cleveland home.
The former school bus driver is also accused of the aggravated murder of a fetus for allegedly forcibly causing an abortion in one of his victims that he is accused of impregnating, a charge that could potentially carry the death penalty.
The 52-year-old walked into Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court today in shackles, with his head hung low, and answered "yes" and "no" to the judge'sRead More »from Prosecutors Plan More Charges Against Ariel Castro, Trial Tentatively Set For August
