A body found in the Charles River has been identified as that of a Boston University music professor who disappeared a month ago, officials said Tuesday.

An autopsy determined that John Daverio, whose body was found Monday by a college rowing team, had drowned, Middlesex district attorney's spokeswoman Emily LaGrassa said.

The circumstances of Daverio's death were unknown, but police Capt. William Evans said investigators do not suspect foul play.

Daverio was last seen on the evening of March 16 headed toward the BU Bridge, which spans the river. He had taught at BU since 1979.

Daverio, 48, was one of the world's leading scholars on the work of composer Robert Schumann. He recently published a book called "Crossing Paths: Schubert, Schumann, and Brahms," which explored the link between art and life in the work of the three musicians.

Elizabeth Seitz, a fellow music professor who had been Daverio's friend for 18 years, rejected any hypothesis that Daverios had committed suicide.

"He was doing well," she said. "He was at the peak of his career. ... He was always busy, had a million friends. And everyone universally respected and liked him."
