Purdue honors Boldt with posthumous degree
WEST LAFAYETTE (Feb. 24, 2014) – A Purdue University student who was fatally shot and stabbed during an attack last month has been awarded a posthumous degree.
Purdue’s board of trustees approved the degree in electrical engineering for 21-year-old Andrew Boldt a month after he was killed.
University officials said Boldt, who was from West Bend, Wis., fulfilled most of the degree requirements before his death on Jan. 21 inside Purdue’s Electrical Engineering Building.
Purdue student Cody Cousins, 23, is accused of killing Boldt and is charged with murder.
