Update: An autopsy is underway on Ryan Uhre's body. When results are released, WFLA will bring you the details.
The gutted building he was found in has been vacant since 2006 and was given to the Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare Foundation by a donor who intended for the foundation to sell and use the proceeds for the hospital.
From 2.18.14: Tallahassee Police have confirmed that the body that was found in a building at 111 College Ave. near Duval St. is Ryan Uhre.
TPD says that after reviewing video, officers were looking over the area around 8:30am Tuesday morning. That’s when they discovered the 23 year old missing student’s body.
At this time there's no foulplay suspected but the investigation is ongoing. Authorities have not said how Uhre died nor have they commented on the condition of his body when it was found.
The FSU student had been missing since the evening of Super Bowl Sunday.
