SHARE Man convicted in Purdue shooting found dead

MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. — State correction officials say an Indiana man who fatally stabbed and shot a fellow Purdue University student earlier this year has been found dead in his prison cell.

The Indiana Department of Correction released a statement Wednesday saying 24-year-old Cody Cousins was pronounced dead from an apparent suicide about 30 minutes after he was found unresponsive Tuesday night at the Indiana State Prison.

The department says Cousins suffered self-inflicted lacerations to his neck and arms.

Investigators say Cousins entered a classroom filled with students on the West Lafayette campus on Jan. 21 and attacked 21-year-old Andrew Boldt. Boldt was from West Bend, Wisconsin.

Cousins was sentenced last month to 65 years in prison after pleading guilty to murder.
