Professor wanted by Chicago police in connection with murder

Wyndham Lathem

Police spokesperson Anthony Gugliemi issued an appeal on Wednesday, asking the men to "do the right thing and turn yourself in" as the search "will only intensify". Pictured left side, Chicago hairstylist, Trenton Cornell-Duranleau who the two educators are alleged to have murdered.

Cook County Judge Sandra Ramos issued first-degree murder arrest warrants for 42-year-old Wyndham Lathem, an associate professor in microbiology-immunology, and 56-year-old Andrew Warren, an employee at Oxford University, in the United Kingdom.

Warren is listed as senior treasury assistant at Somerville College, which is part of England's Oxford University network.

Police have not said why Cornell-Duranleau was killed or what his relationship was to the suspects. A subsequent medical examination showed that Cornell-Duranleau died after suffering multiple sharp force lacerations. Authorities believe they have fled Chicago, possibly in a rented gray 2017 Hyundai.

A police broadcast warned the public that the two men at large may be armed and risky.

Court files give his address as Oxford University but his Facebook page says he lives in Swindon, Wiltshire.


"My research focuses on the mechanisms by which pathogenic bacteria cause disease in humans, using Yersinia species as models to understand the nature of the host-pathogen interaction during respiratory (lung) infections", Lathem wrote on his profile.

Lathem had been an associate professor of microbiology-immunity at Northwestern's Chicago campus since 2007, University spokesman Al Cubbage said.

Read the statement, 'This is now a criminal matter under investigation by the appropriate authorities, and Northwestern University is cooperating in that investigation'.

In a brief telephone interview, Cornell said the family in MI - where Cornell-Duranleau was born and raised before moving to Chicago - doesn't know the suspects.

Lathem and Cornell-Duranleau appear to have lived together at the River North apartment, Guglielmi said.
