Stabbing on BU's Campus, Suspect At Large

Binghamton University student killed in campus stabbing

Binghamton University alerted students to the cancellation hours after first-year engineering student Joao Souza, 19, was stabbed to death on campus Sunday night.

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

Police say they believe this was not a random act. Classes were canceled for the day at BU on Monday, April 16, as a result of the tragedy.

Several people have been interviewed overnight by investigators from multiple agencies, university officials said. They released surveillance photos of the suspect wearing dark trousers and a dark, hooded sweatshirt as they asked for the public's help.

Police did not elaborate early Monday evening where the suspect was found or his name, but said he was a Binghamton Unviersity student.
