Nobel victor hospitalised, wife found dead

Mrs. Negishi, from Japan, is married to the Nobel Chemistry laureate Ei-ichi Negishi.

Authorities in northern IL are investigating the death of the wife of a Nobel Prize winning chemistry professor whose body was found at a landfill hours after the couple were reported missing in Indiana.

The couple was reported missing to the Indiana State Police about 8pm on Monday (local time). However, numerous details of their disappearance are still a mystery.

Police found them early Tuesday morning about 200 miles (320 km) northeast of their home, on land belonging to the Orchard Hills Landfill operated by the company Advanced Disposal.

Police would not confirm details about the incident, but did not suspect foul play. Local law enforcement agencies are now leading the investigation.

This statement was released from Purdue President Mitch Daniels. 13 News has confirmed that Mr. Negishi is a chemistry research at Purdue University. He said that throughout a lifetime of love and loyalty, she supported her husband in a career of tremendous contributions to science.

It appears that the Parkinson's disease from which she has been suffering and the mental confusion that age can bring to the most brilliant minds combined to produce the recent tragic events. Police say the family had no indication the Negishis were in the Rockford area.
