Body of Purdue football player Sean Matti found

Sean Matti

The Purdue football program had been holding out hope that there would be a happy ending in the search for missing running back Sean Matti.  In a heartbreaking punch to the gut, that’s not the case.

WISH-TV in Indianapolis is reporting that Matti’s body was recovered from Lake Freeman Tuesday morning.  Matti was just 22 years old.

Matti, who would have been a fifth-year senior, was last seen swimming in the lake around 5 p.m. local time Sunday.  He was reported missing roughly six hours later.

There has been no cause of death released as of yet, nor has the university issued a statement on the player’s passing.

Matti has been a part of the Boilermakers program since 2007 as a walk-on.

Our thoughts, prayers and condolences go out to Matti’s family, friends, teammates, coaches and anyone else impacted by this terrible tragedy.
