Binghamton Stabbing Victim Identified

Classes at Binghamton are canceled today.

Binghamton University has identified the victim stabbed to death on campus Sunday night as Joao Souza, a 19-year-old freshman engineering student.

This is the second student death at Binghamton in just over a month. In the coming hours and days more information will be released, and in the meantime, we encourage anyone in need to seek counseling services provided by the University.

The suspect fled after the 10:30 p.m. stabbing in Windham Hall, a student residence, according to the university.

Police from multiple agencies investigating the stabbing interviewed "numerous people" throughout the night, according to the university.

Officials said "At this time, the police are confident this was not a random act". He was described as a "light-skinned male wearing dark trousers and a dark, Puma hooded sweatshirt".

Anderson's murder shocked students.

Campus police and New York State Police have been on campus, searching the area near the on-campus housing building Windham Hall.

Tercero was arrested in Nicaragua and charged with the Westbury, Long Island woman's murder, leaving law enforcement officials tasked with trying to get him extradited to the United States.
