University of New Hampshire student found dead in woods

A 22-year-old University of New Hampshire student was found dead Sunday afternoon in a marshy area near the campus after he was reported missing a day earlier, authorities said.

Vincenzo Lirosi disappeared after a night of drinking, police said, and he was last seen early Saturday morning shortly after leaving a fraternity party where he reportedly got into a fight, a pal of his, Jordan Blanchard, told WMUR-TV.

“It’s pretty uncharacteristic of him,” Blanchard told the news station. “This is his first fight ever.”

Lirosi was kicked out of the party following the alleged feud, Blanchard said.

Other partygoers told police they last saw Lirosi walking along a wooden path frequented by students around campus at about 1 a.m. Saturday.

He was reported missing about two hours later.

An autopsy will determine the student’s cause of death.
