    A body was found in the Tiber River today is thought to be Beau Solomon, a 19-year-old University of Wisconsin student who was on his first day studying abroad in Rome and had gone missing.

    A spokesman for the John Cabot University, where he was a student, said in a statement on their website, "John Cabot University is deeply saddened to announce that the body of Beau Solomon, the missing American visiting student, has been found in the Tiber River."

    "We express our most heartfelt condolences to the Solomon family and to all those who loved Beau," the statement added.

    His brother, Cole Solomon, told WKOW that it was unlike his brother to go missing.

    "He's the most responsible kid ever," Solomon said. "This is just so uncharacteristic of Beau."

    Beau was a cancer survivor and model student who was set to graduate college in only three years, according to family.

    "He had over 15 to 20 procedures growing up throughout his life and was able to overcome all of that and still became a phenomenal high school athlete," Solomon explained, regarding his brother's battles with cancer as a child.

    Beau's parents left for Italy Sunday afternoon to look for their missing son, a day before news of his death was reported.

    ROME — A homeless man was charged with murder Tuesday in connection with the death of U.S. college student Beau Solomon, who vanished just hours after arriving in the Italian capital last week.

    Investigators identified the accused as Massimo Galioto, a 40-year-old homeless man. He was being charged with "aggravated murder," a police spokesman told NBC News.

    After the disappearance, Solomon's parents called their son's credit card company and "realized thousands of dollars had been charged" in Milan to his account, according to his brother Jake Solomon. Milan is about 350 miles north of Rome.
