After manhunt at Binghamton University, suspect arrested in Joao Souza's stabbing death

"They have reported that this does not appear to be a random act", the university said.

Souza, 19, died after he was stabbed on the ground floor of Windham Hall of Mountainview College late Sunday night, police said.

According to BU officials, Souza is an worldwide student from Brazil, but the New York Post reports that Souza graduated from high school a year ago in the Westchester County Village of Rye Brook.

A teenager from Rye Brook has been stabbed to death at Binghamton University. They described the suspect as a light-skinned male wearing dark trousers and a dark, hooded sweatshirt.

At this time, investigators from multiple agencies are interviewing people and searching areas of the campus around Windham Hall.

This was the second slaying of a student in the last two months.

Authorities say they believe a 19-year-old Binghamton University freshman fatally stabbed on the university's main NY campus was targeted.

It was the second homicide involving a BU student this year. "I'm absolutely sure we'll do that again". Furthermore, the school is offering counseling services. Haley Anderson, 22, was killed at an Oak Street residence in Binghamton in March.

Souza had previously attended high school in NY and was a native of Brazil, where his family was notified, according to the university.

Conrad Taylor, 21, a December Binghamton University graduate who also serves on the Binghamton City Council, described this tragedy as heartbreaking - a disgusting crime.

Broome County District Attorney's office says Michael M. Roque, 20, is charged with 2nd degree murder.
