Binghamton University cancels classes after second student murder in 5 weeks

A 19-year-old freshman was fatally stabbed on New York's Binghamton University campus and his assailant remained at large Monday, authorities said.

A university in NY canceled classes Monday after the second murder of a student in five weeks. According to the university, "The suspect, described as a light-skinned male wearing dark trousers and a dark, Puma hooded sweatshirt, remains at large".

Binghamton University's website says that the suspect fled after the stabbing and now remains at large. Earlier Monday morning, B.U. announced classes were canceled for Monday on the university's messaging program.

On March 11, Binghamton nursing student Haley Anderson, 22, of Westbury, Long Island, was found murdered at an off-campus residence.

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

Officials said that police are confident this was not a random act. At last report, no suspect was in custody. The suspect, described as a light-skinned male wearing dark trousers and a dark, Puma hooded sweatshirt, remains at large.

The school is offering counseling services for students, faculty and staff. BU officials said that if students would like to speak to someone, they should reach out to the Dean of Students Office and CARE Team by calling 607-777-2804.

Police from multiple agencies investigating the stabbing interviewed "numerous people" throughout the night, according to the university. They can be reached at 607-777-6655 or 607-777-6650 during regular office hours, or an off-campus coordinator can be reached after hours by calling the 24-hour EAP call line at 1-800-822-0244. "They have reported that this does not appear to be a random act".

In an emergency, call 911.
