Man Fatally Stabs Ex-Girlfriend And Her New Man Before Committing Suicide
A young college student sad over a bad breakup violently stabbed his ex-girlfriend to death and another college athlete she was with in her off-campus apartment before commiting suicide according to Black America Web reports:
Colin Kingston, of Geneseo, entered Kelsey Annese’s apartment around 6 a.m. Sunday near the State University of New York at Geneseo in upstate New York, police officer Jeffrey Szczensiak told reporters Monday. Kingston, who brought a large knife he had recently purchased, found her with another student, Matthew Hutchinson, of Vancouver, British Columbia.
Kingston, a former student at the school, killed them both. It’s possible that Annese, 21, and Hutchinson, 24, were sleeping when Kingston entered, but police were not sure. Kingston called his father before killing himself, Szczensiak said.
“All indications are that Mr. Kingston used the same knife to take his own life,” Szczensiak said. He added that Kingston had recently made suicidal comments, and that he had no criminal history.
The deaths of the two students — a women’s basketball team captain and a men’s hockey player — occurred two days before the start of Geneseo’s spring semester. The college about 35 miles south of Rochester postponed the men’s and women’s basketball games scheduled for Tuesday and were making counselors available to students and faculty.
College friends and faculty spoke about the heinous crime…
“It is a profoundly sad day for the college and village of Geneseo,” college president Denise Battles said, in a shaky voice nearing tears. “We realize that members of our community will handle this tragedy differently. We will be supplying professional counseling services for Kelsey’s teammates.”
Annese wore the number 32 because it is the same number her father wore when he played for Geneseo, according to the college’s website.
Her coach, Scott Hemer, said the senior education major was selfless, and “a grinder” with a work ethic respected by her coaches and teammates.
