Binghamton freshman fatally stabbed, search on for suspect

'Dear Binghamton University Community, I am deeply saddened to write to you regarding last night's stabbing that led to the death of one of our students, Joao Souza, a 19-year-old freshman engineering student, ' he said.

The suspect was being held on campus, Cornwell said Monday, and criminal charges were anticipated. I thank our Binghamton University Police, New York State Police and the Broome County District Attorney's office for their quick work in apprehending the individual as quickly as possible'. They described the unidentified suspect as a light-skinned male wearing dark trousers and a dark, hooded sweatshirt.

The school cancelled all classes on Monday in a show of solidarity with the victim. Authorities say he was attacked in Windham Hall, a campus residence hall. "Throughout the investigation it became quickly evident to us that this was not a random act", Timothy Faughnan, university police chief, said at a Monday news conference. The investigation is ongoing.

Souza was from Brazil, university officials told reporters at a Monday news conference.

Jonathan Ross, superintendent of the Blind Brook school district in Westchester County, told the Journal News that Souza graduated a year ago from Blind Brook High School in Rye Brook, where he was a standout soccer player.

Police have charged a suspect in the deadly stabbing of a Binghamton University freshman who died Sunday.

"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", said Taylor. These tragedies shake us to the core and we grieve together. The Student Assembly is committed to ensuring no student need fear for their safety while furthering their education.

Souza's death marks the second time a Binghamton student has been killed this semester. On March 9, the body of Haley Anderson, of Westbury on Long Island, was found in the off-campus apartment of a fellow student she had briefly dated.
