Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The body of a missing Indiana University student has been found floating in a lake, near the school.

The coroner identified the student as 20-year-old Joseph Smedley, who was last seen a week ago.

Smedley's sister says she received a text message from him saying he was leaving the country.

The Monroe County Coroner's Office says Smedley likely drowned.

He is the third IU student to be found dead in the last week.

Two other students were found dead Wednesday, following an apparent murder-suicide.

The university's president released a statement saying he sends his deepest sympathies to the families.
