Wentworth Community Mourns the Loss of Max Carbone

April 6, 2019

The Wentworth community is devastated by the loss of Max Carbone, a 19-year old sophomore at the university. He was a talented young man who had chosen biomedical engineering as his field of study. He had many friends within and outside of Wentworth, and a warm and loving extended family who will all miss him. We extend our heartfelt sympathies to the Carbone family. The family has been on campus and we have been doing all we can to support them during this tragedy. We will continue to focus on supporting the family, his friends and students.

We deeply appreciate all of the students and family members who joined the Boston Police Department and the Wentworth Department of Public Safety in extensive search efforts to find Max early in his disappearance. We are comforted by the strength and support of our community during this crisis. 

Wentworth will continue to work with the Boston Police Department to understand how this tragedy could have happened and what, if anything, could be done in the future to prevent a similar situation. 

This is an ongoing investigation by the Boston Police Department and additional questions should be referred to them at 617-343-4287.


Statement from the Carbone Family

We ask the media to respect our privacy during this difficult time. Our hearts are broken. Max was a sweet, happy and loving son, brother and friend. He was a hardworking student who cared about helping people. He will be missed dearly. We want to thank the Boston and Nahant Police and the Wentworth Community.

Mr. and Mrs. Carbone
