CHICAGO -- Police in Chicago are searching for a Northwestern University professor and an employee of Great Britain's University of Oxford, both suspects in the murder of a 26-year-old man found stabbed to death. The duo are considered armed and dangerous, according to police. Cook County court records show that on Monday a judge issued first-degree murder warrant for 42-year-old Wyndham Lathem, an associate professor of microbiology and immunology at Northwestern, and 56-year-old Andrew Warren, a senior treasury assistant at the University of Oxford's Somerville College.
Lathem is a professor at Northwestern's Feinberg medical school. The stabbing took place in an apartment near my office, which is a few blocks from the med school and hospital.
