A Chicago professor at one of the most prestigious universities in the country is wanted in the murder of a 26-year-old man found stabbed to death, CBS News reported.

Wyndham Lathem, 42, is an associate professor of microbiology and immunology at Northwestern. He is wanted in the death of Trenton H. James Cornell-Duranleau, along with another suspect, Andrew Warren, a 56-year-old employee of England’s University of Oxford.

Police said that both suspects are armed and dangerous.

Investigators found Cornell-Duranleau’s body at Lathem’s home, but it’s unclear what the suspects’ relationship to the victim is, according to CBS. 

Lathem was placed on administrative leave, a Northwestern spokesman told CBS. He is banned from entering school property.
