Northwestern professor issued arrest warrant in River North fatal stabbing

Warrants were issued on Monday for Andrew Warren, a senior treasury assistant at Somerville College in Oxford, and Wyndham Lathem, a microbiology professor at Northwestern University specialising in bubonic plague.

Anthony Guglielmi, a Chicago police spokesman, said Wednesday that a Cook County judge issued first-degree murder warrants for Wyndham Lathem, 42, and Andrew Warren, 56, in the killing of Trenton Cornell-Duranleau.

According to an Oxford University web page which has since been deleted, suspect Warren is in charge of payroll and pensions at Somerville College. The U.S. Marshals Service is helping search for the men, and the State Department has flagged their passports. Lathem was placed on administrative leave and is barred from campus, Northwestern spokesman Alan Cubbage said. "Prof Latham (sic) & Mr Warren, do the right thing & turn yourself in to any police dept".

Once inside, police found 26-year-old Trenton Cornell-Duranleau stabbed to death. An autopsy found he died of multiple sharp force injuries and his death was ruled a homicide.

Public records indicate Lathem living at the address where Cornell-Duranleau's body was found.

"Throughout his life he loved music and animals", family members said in the obituary.

In a brief telephone interview, Cornell said the family in MI - where Cornell-Duranleau was born and raised before moving to Chicago - doesn't know the suspects.

He said there is no indication that Lathem, an associate professor of microbiology-immunology who has been on the faculty since 2007, is a danger to anyone at the school.

A statement from Oxford University said it was "not aware of this case, which is clearly extremely concerning", reports the Chicago Tribune. "His enthusiasm for life was infectious. We will liaise with the relevant investigating authorities and provide any assistance that is required". "His youthful free-spirit fueled his love of cars, video games and cartoons".
