BATON ROUGE - A man, who is not a student, is suspected of living in a building at LSU and is now wanted by police.

Evidence indicating that someone was sleeping and eating inside a student lounge at Patrick Taylor Hall was found last week, according to Capt. Cory Lalonde with LSU Police.

Lalonde said Edward Michelli, 43, who has no affiliation to the university, was approached by campus personnel last Tuesday, who questioned him before calling police.

He was gone by the time police arrived.

"They identified several objects and items that indicated somebody was staying there," Lalonde said.

LSU Police obtained a warrant for Michelli's arrest. While they don't believe him to be dangerous, stolen items were found mixed in with his things.

"We did find some items that we believe were stolen property that he had in his belongings in the location," Lalonde said. "So we believe he might be involved in other incidents on campus."

The news doesn't sit well for some students.

"Guy was able to just break in there and stay there and no one knew," said LSU student Stephanie Dickerson. "It says something about security."

If you have any information on Michelli's whereabouts, call LSU Police at (225) 578-3231, or submit a tip anonymously online at the LSU Police website.
