    Northwestern University associate professor and a University of
    Oxford employee are wanted in connection with the stabbing death
    of a man in a Near North Side apartment, according to public

    A Cook County judge issued arrest warrants Monday charging
    Wyndham Lathem, 42, and Andrew Warren, 56, with first-degree
    murder in the death of 26-year-old Trenton Cornell-Duranleau
    last week, records show.

    An alert broadcast over police radio says the two should be
    considered armed and dangerous. Late Wednesday afternoon,
    Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi reported no arrests.

    "Our search will only intensify,'' tweeted Guglielmi. "Prof
    Latham (Lathem) & Mr Warren, do the right thing & turn yourself
    in to any police dept.''

    Lathem is an associate professor at Northwestern's Department of Microbiology-Immunology at the Feinberg School of Medicine. In
    his LinkedIn profile, Lathem said his research is focused on
    pathogens and the diseases they cause.

    Lathem has been placed on administrative leave and is banned
    from all Northwestern campuses, according to school spokesman
    Alan K. Cubbage. He was a faculty researcher at the school's
    Chicago campus.

    The university is cooperating with the police investigation,
    Cubbage said.

    Warren is a senior treasury assistant at Somerville College,
    part of the Oxford University network, according to a university
    web page.

    Chicago police officers responded to a 10th-floor apartment in
    the 500 block of North State Street about 8:30 p.m. Thursday
    after a maintenance worker reported getting an anonymous call
    that a crime was committed there.

    Officers found Cornell-Duranleau dead on the scene. Lathem
    lists his home at the same address on State Street, public
    records show. The building is on the same block as the Grand
    Avenue Red Line station.

    Cornell-Duranleau died of multiple sharp force injuries,
    according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He had
    lived in the 2200 block of South Wood Street in the Heart of
    Chicago neighborhood on the Near Southwest Side, the office said.

    He grew up in Michigan, according to public records. Cornell-
    Duranleau earned a state license as a cosmetologist in 2011,
    according to the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory

    His mother, Mischelle Duranleau, posted a message on Facebook
    over the weekend asking for prayers "as we navigate this very
    dark part of our Journey."

    According to an obituary posted by the mother, Cornell-Duranleau
    was born in Lennon, Mich., a small town about 50 miles northeast
    of Lansing.

    "Throughout his life he loved music and animals," the obituary
    said. "His enthusiasm for life was infectious. Trenton was a
    caregiver and loved to help others. His youthful free-spirit
    fueled his love of cars, video games and cartoons."

    Northwestern was made aware of the investigation into Cornell-
    Duranleau's death on Monday afternoon, Cubbage said.

    Lathem has been with Northwestern since 2007, according to
    Cubbage, who said he worked primarily in a research lab. "At
    some point in the past few years he taught medical students or
    graduate students, never undergrad,’’ Cubbage said.

    Lathem was not currently teaching and was not scheduled to be in
    a classroom in the fall, Cubbage said.

    Oxford University, where the other suspect worked, released a
    statement Tuesday saying it was "not aware of this case, which
    is clearly extremely concerning. We will liaise with the
    relevant investigating authorities and provide any assistance
    that is required.”
