WHITEWATER (AP) -- A missing University of Wisconsin-Whitewater student has been found dead in a limestone quarry in Walworth County.

The sheriff's office says the body of 21-year-old Benjamin R. Fuder was found Sunday, July 29th about 6:45 a.m. The circumstances of his death were not immediately released, although foul play is not suspected.
