Arrest Made Following Binghamton Stabbing

Student fatally stabbed at Binghamton University

According to The (Westchester County, N.Y.) Journal News, Souza graduated from Blind Brooke-Rye Union Free School District in Rye Brook, N.Y., a year ago and was a star soccer player.

Souza appears to have been targeted, and the stabbing was not a random attack, police say.

Binghamton offered counseling to students in the wake of the stabbing and canceled classes on Monday.

The suspected assailant remained at large.

This is the second BU student to be slain during the spring semester, as 22-year old Haley Anderson was killed at 23 Oak Street in Binghamton last month.

The casualty, Joao Souza, 19, was assaulted in his dormitory bundle all around 10:30 p.m. on Sunday.

Binghamton officials are contacting the victim's family and will provide more details about what happened as they become available, according to the SUNY university's website.


The name of the suspect was not immediately released.

Investigators interviewed witnesses overnight.

The Broome County district attorney's office is seeking to have that suspect returned from Nicaragua, where he was arrested, to stand trial.

"We want to make sure that everyone is reassured that the campus is safe and that there is no threat to the campus", Faughnan said. "I'm absolutely sure we'll do that again".

As he walked outside the Couper Administration Building Monday morning, 21-year-old Conrad Taylor, a December 2017 graduate of BU who also serves on Binghamton City Council, described this tragedy is heartbreaking - a disgusting crime.

The University is offering a number of services for students, faculty and staff following the incident. The Student Assembly is committed to ensuring no student need fear for their safety while furthering their education.
