Day after being reported missing, wife of Purdue professor found dead at Illinois landfill

OGLE COUNTY, Ill. - The wife of a Purdue professor was found dead at a landfill in Rockford, Illinois early Tuesday morning.

Ei-ichi Negishi, 82, a chemist teaching at Purdue University in the neighboring state of in, and his wife Sumire Negishi, 80, were reported missing Monday.

Eiichi and Sumire Negishi had been in an accident in which their vehicle got stuck in a ditch, local media reported, quoting a statement from his family.

Police discovered Ei-ichi Negishi walking in the area, and his wife was found dead near their vehicle. His wife, Sumire Negishi, was also missing.

"An autopsy was performed and the cause of death is pending but foul play is not suspected", the police said on their website, adding that the case "remains under investigation".
