Oxford University worker in murder manhunt

Posted August 04, 2017

Cops have urged Oxford University's Andrew Warren and science professor Wyndham Lathem to "do the right thing" and contact police after a 26-year-old man was found dead with multiple stab wounds last Thursday.

Neighbors say he was dating the victim. Arrest warrants were issued Monday for Northwestern Medical School Professor Wyndham Lathem and Oxford's Andy Warren.

Public records show the suspect lived on the 10th floor in this building.

They are suspected of repeatedly stabbing Trenton Cornell-Duranleau in Lathem's apartment on July 27.

Duranleau grew up in MI, but most recently lived in an apartment building near West 22nd Place and South Wood Street in Pilsen.

A notice emailed last week to Grand Plaza residents by building managers after Cornell-Duranleau's body was discovered said that Chicago Police were investigating "a variety of motives, including a possible domestic incident". He has been placed on administrative leave and banned from entering Northwestern campuses, according to university spokesman Alan Cubbage.

Students at Northwestern say they are shocked today to hear these allegations.

Chicago police believe these men are armed and risky.

"Throughout his life he loved music and animals", she wrote.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Lathem's research focused on how pathogenic bacteria cause disease in humans. "His enthusiasm for life was infectious". According to a listing now removed from the Oxford University directory, Warren-a British citizen-is a senior treasury assistant at Somerville College.

In a post on Facebook, the Cornell-Duranleau family wrote: "Our Family is deeply saddened by the death of our son".

Cornell-Duranleau, a native of MI, worked as a hair stylist and loved video games, cars and cartoons, according to his obituary shared on Facebook by his mother.
