BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - A second victim of Thursday’s plane crash in Ukraine may have had ties to Indiana University.
IU officials said Friday a man with the same name and age as the pilot of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was a former student, but they cannot confirm they are the same person.
Officials said a student by the name of Wan Amran Wan Hussin studied in the computer science program from the fall of 1982 until the summer of 1985 -- but he did not graduate, IU Associate Vice President Mark Land said.
Land said the name and age match, but since he did not graduate, the university did not have records or contacts like they do for alumni.
IU grad student Karlijn Keijzer , 25, of Amsterdam, was also a passenger on the plane.
Few other details were released.
