A 20-year-old Indian-origin Cornell University student was found dead here after going missing this week. Aalaap Narasipura, a senior electrical engineering student at Cornell’s College of Engineering was reported missing since Wednesday.  Cornell University Police, working with the New York State Police, the Ithaca Police Department and the Ithaca Fire Department, recovered his body yesterday from Fall Creek, a short distance upstream from Ithaca Falls. Cornell University Police confirmed Narasipura’s identity. Police said the circumstances of Narasipura’s death are still under investigation, but no foul play is suspected. No other information is available at this time.

Police had searched gorges and adjacent natural areas in Ithaca. Earlier authorities had issued an advisory describing Narasipura as a dark-skinned male, 5-feet-9 inches tall. He was last seen in the early morning of May 17 on Cornell’s campus, and was wearing shorts and a flannel shirt with bright blue socks and leather sandals.

    There is a long list of sudden disappearance deaths of college students. Many are engineering students. There are still four Canadian engineering students missing. Schools do not warn students about a "mental break causing design mistake" design engineers discovered, and solved fifty years ago. _ When they were told the mental events they discovered were caused by the long term consciously forced suppression of the vision startle reflex, they created the office cubicle, and later Systems Furniture, to block peripheral vision stopping the problem since 1968. College students are not warned to use "peripheral vision blocking protection" when they study, or use a computer long hours were there is detectable movement nearby in peripheral vision. The problem is called -- visual subliminal distraction. My site is a 15 year investigation of Subliminal Distraction. Engineering students have heavy academic loads in subjects requiring deep mental invest9men More chances for the mistake
