BREAKING POLICE IDENTIFY MURDER SUSPECT: in BU Fatal Stabbing

Stabbing on BU's Campus, Suspect At Large

We are getting our first look at the man suspected in the stabbing death of a 19-year-old freshman on Binghamton University's campus.

Binghamton University President Harvey Stenger described the homicides of two BU students this year - Haley Anderson, a 22-year-old nursing student, was slain in March - as devastating losses.

The suspect in that case fled to Nicaragua and Broome County is looking to have him sent back to stand trial. "They canvassed the areas, searching in different areas and conducting different searches and all of those things were done".

Although the identity of the suspect remained undisclosed during a 5 p.m. press conference, Broome County District Attorney Steve Cornwell said the suspect is also a BU student.

The alert stated the stabbing happened around 10:30 p.m.in Windham Hall. Police say the suspect, a student at the school, has been arrested.

According to BU officials, Souza is an global student from Brazil, but the New York Post reports that Souza graduated from high school previous year in the Westchester County Village of Rye Brook.

The school, one of the four university centers in New York's sprawling state university system, canceled classes Monday due the "tragic event". Souza was transported to Wilson Hospital and later died from his injuries.

'At this time, the police are confident this was not a random act, ' the university said on its website.

"As someone who was a student until a few months ago, and someone who is still a part of the BU community, it's tough to hear about something like this happening on campus", Taylor said. Counseling was being offered to students and staff.
