Northwestern University Professor Wanted in Chicago Killing

Wyndham Lathem, 42, and Andrew Warren, 56, are being sought by Chicago police.

An associate professor at Northwestern University and an employee of England’s University of Oxford are wanted in the killing of a 30-year-old man found inside the professor’s Chicago apartment.

Chicago police issued first-degree murder arrest warrants on Wednesday for Wyndham Lathem, associate professor of microbiology and immunology at Northwestern University, and Andrew Warren, who works for Oxford.

Police told CNN they could not elaborate on any possible relationship between the victim and the two suspects.

Lathem, 42, and Warren, 56, are suspected of stabbing 30-year-old Trenton Cornell-Duranleau, a Chicago-area cosmetologist, inside Lathem’s Grand Plaza Apartment in the River North Neighborhood, police said.

Police on Thursday told CNN they believe the suspects have fled the area.

“We do have an idea of their whereabouts and efforts to locate them are only intensifying from here on in,” said Chicago Police in an email to CNN. “Our primary focus is to facilitate a safe surrender.”

Lathem’s passport and Warren’s travel visa have been restricted.
