Carbondale Police Chief Jody O'Guinn said the difficult terrain and low temperatures are believed to have contributed to Varughese's difficulty finding his way out of the woods.

Deputy Chief Stan Reno said there were no obvious signs of trauma on Varughese's body. An autopsy will be performed to determine the exact cause of death of the criminal justice major from suburban Chicago.
