Bowie State student fatally stabbed in dorm

Quote:
Greg Shipley, a spokesman for Maryland State Police, said a preliminary investigation indicated that the victim and suspect had a verbal argument that “escalated into a fight and culminated in the stabbing.”
Absolutely sad. Just heard, it was over the volume of an Ipod.

And I read that the suspect apparently made a comment about stabbing someone a few days ago on her twitter account. Also smh. My sympathies with the family of the deceased.

I heard about this earlier. I just transferred from there so it was especially surprising to me. I feel so sorry for the family, losing a love one so young over something so foolish.

For someone to go and grab a pair of scisors after the fight was broken up and stab someone in the neck tells me clearly that they knew what they were doing. doesn't seem like this happened in the heat of the moment (manslaughter) according to the published reports and witness statements.

tragic and avoidable and ultimately puts a terrible stain on the university (which i've heard great things about) and hbcu's.

Yeah she is going to have a tough time getting off or having a reduced sentenced. She's lucky this wasn't capital murder because of the high profile nature of the crime she could very well be staring at a death penalty case.

Folks need to calm down and take a breather it's just not that serious.

Also I'm curious as to Bowie's housing policy. I know it is more of a commuter school but speculation on the internet is the victim was a lesbian and folks are saying that was the crux of their problems. I wonder if one of them requested a room change and were denied because of limited space?

I heard that too. If she is a lesbian and they find any kind of proof that it played a role in this they will spin this into a hate crime.
