The corpse of a Yale University employee who went missing three months ago was discovered on the shores of Long Island, according to the Ivy League institution, which revealed the discovery on Wednesday.

Anton Sovetov, 44, was discovered dead on Saturday on the New York side of the Long Island Sound shoreline, just across from Yale University's campus in New Haven, Conn., according to a statement from the university. The exact cause of death is still being investigated.

Yale authorities did not disclose where Sovetov's corpse was discovered, other than to say that it was in Suffolk County, where police are in charge of the investigation.

According to an obituary released by the school, the St. Petersburg-born Sovetov was a graphic designer who worked in the Office of the University Printer and had developed a series of public health posters for the university during the COVID-19 epidemic.

In 2016, he got a master's degree from the Yale School of Art, according to his obituary, which said.

He had last spoken with campus authorities on February 4, and he was seen going toward his residence in New Haven the next day, according to a press statement from the institution. Sovetov was reported missing on February 9 and has not been seen since.

“Anton was a wonderful, devoted colleague with uncommon talent. His work honored and added to Yale’s legacy of exceptional graphic design. We will miss him dearly.”
