The 24-year-old man got distraught over a recent breakup with the girl, the police said on Monday. The jealous boyfriend stabbed to death his ex-girlfriend and a fellow college athlete she was with in her off-campus bedroom and killed himself thereafter, apparently with the same knife.
According to the police, as reported by abc7ny.com, Colin Kingston, of Geneseo, entered Kelsey Annese’s apartment around 6am on Sunday, near the State University of New York at Geneseo in upstate New York.
Kingston, who brought a large knife he had recently purchased, found her with another student, Matthew Hutchinson, of Vancouver, British Columbia.
Though, the police were not sure of how the killing took place, the report says Kingston, a former student at the school might have killed them both while asleep.
Kingston called his father before killing himself, police officer Jeffrey Szczensiak told reporters on Monday.
Szczensiak said, “All indications are that Mr. Kingston used the same knife to take his own life.
“Kingston had recently made suicidal comments, and he had no criminal history,” he added.
