The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - WORLD -

GE­NE­SEO, N.Y. — Po­lice say a col­lege stu­dent from Van­cou­ver and a fe­male stu­dent were the ap­par­ent vic­tims of a mur­der­sui­cide in New York state. They say 24-year-old Matthew Hutchin­son and 21-year-old Kelsey An­nese were stabbed to death at a home near the cam­pus of the State Univer­sity of New York at Ge­ne­seo, about 55 kilo­me­tres south of Rochester. The body of 24-year-old for­mer stu­dent Colin Kingston was also found at the home on Sun­day and po­lice say they are con­fi­dent he was the killer and he acted alone. Po­lice say there were no vis­i­ble signs of a strug­gle and Hutchin­son, a hockey player at the univer­sity who had also played with the Chilli­wack Chiefs, and An­nese may have been killed in their sleep. Po­lice say Kingston was dis­traught over a re­cent break up and stabbed to death An­nese, his ex-girl­friend, and Hutchin­son with a large knife. In­ves­ti­ga­tors say the for­mer stu­dent called his father be­fore turn­ing the knife on him­self.
