Mom of Mass. student whose body was found in reservoir says he was 'a wonderful kid'
BOSTON (AP) ' The mother of a Boston College student whose body was found in a reservoir says through tears that he was "a wonderful kid" and that she can't say more because she wants to be with family.
Family friend Genoveva Tavera tells The Associated Press that police confirmed Wednesday to the parents of Franco Garcia that the body is his. The 21-year-old Garcia disappeared after leaving a bar popular with college students early on Feb. 22.
His mother, Luzmila Garcia, tells the AP that authorities hadn't yet said whether they suspect foul play.
The reservoir where Garcia was found is between the bar and campus, where Garcia had planned to stay in a friend's dorm. Divers had searched the reservoir several times in the weeks after Garcia vanished but did not find him.
