Pope Francis met on Wednesday with the parents of a U.S. college student whose body was found in Rome's Tiber river this week, after apparently either being pushed or tumbling into the murky waters less than 24 hours after arriving in Italy for summer classes.Solomon's body was found on Monday a few kilometers (miles) down river from Trastevere.A female companion of the Italian, who lived in an improvised camp set up along the Tiber's banks and near the base of one of the river's bridges, has said the American fell into the water after a shoving match with Galioto. It wasn't clear at what time Solomon was spotted on the river bank.
