Tampa, Florida-- The University of South Florida is asking for help in identifying the body of a teen who died at the Dozier School for Boys in Marianna, Fla.

Senator Bill Nelson is backing the university's request. He sent a letter to the governor of Pennsylvania in the hopes that he will allow researchers to do an autopsy on Thomas Curry.

Curry was 15 years old when he was enrolled at the school. He mysteriously died 29 days later. His body was sent to Philadelphia to be buried.
