I think the thing that it comes back to is the thought of 'if I can’t have her no one can.' I don’t know if he planned that.
There’s a bunch of theories about why he went to the house that night.
She didn't want him to have to follow her."Former teammate: 'Everyone loved Kelsey' l SUNY Geneseo remembers vicims with memorial service l Kelsey Annese's impact lives on In the early morning hours of Jan. Those are the words used to describe that morning, and the days, weeks, months and soon-to-be years that have followed.
17, Mc Kenna was asleep in a hotel with her parents who had come in for the weekend from Long Island, Cohan was in bed at her home in Rochester, and Sobieraski had just woken up to her phone vibrating, which she answered from her room in Buffalo. "No one in the house heard a thing, so we have no idea how things played out,” said Sobieraski, referring to other housemates who were there at the time of the murders. While the exact details of that night and why Kingston chose to do what he did, remain unknown, one thing that's been made evident is that the reach of dating violence extends far beyond what one might assume as the traditional definition."Nothing that I ever saw would have made me think that something like this would ever happen," said Mc Kenna. Waiting for the doors to open for the remembrance ceremony in the Kuhl Gymnasium of the SUNY Geneseo campus for Kelsey Annese, 21, of Webster and Matthew Hutchinson, 24, of North Vancouver, British Columbia, who were stabbed to death by former student Colin Kingston.
But what they described as "one terrible act that no one saw coming" resulted in three lives lost on a January day in 2016.
Dana Cohan, Allison Mc Kenna and Lea Sobieraski were teammates, friends and co-captains of the Geneseo women's basketball team with Annese. Neither was home the night she was murdered."When you think of an unhealthy relationship, you think of situations where if the two aren't always together, then one person gets mad, but they weren't like that," said Cohan. They'd do homework or make dinner, but if you didn't know her you might not even realize that she had a boyfriend."Like Annese, Cohan grew up in Rochester.
Chanler, Geneseo Fire Chief, pauses while talking about the Matthew Hutchinson, a volunteer at the fire house.
She had mentioned wanting to go away to New York City to teach.
Matthew Hutchinson was one of three people in their early 20s were found dead Sunday morning in an off-campus home near the SUNY Geneseo campus.
A photo of Matthew Hutchinson appears on a christmas card he was given by members of the Geneseo Fire Department where he served as a volunteer firefighter.
Unlike Barnes' story, where signs of abuse were present during the relationship, the story of Kelsey Annese, or at least what is known of it, was seemingly different.
While Barnes had feared for her life at points throughout her relationship, friends of Annese said the more than three years that she spent dating Kingston seemed nothing short of healthy.
She said that the two didn't become friends until their time at Geneseo, where they both played basketball and attended school, but that she had known who Annese was from their youth sports careers."I would always hate playing against her because she had the longest arms," Cohan said with a laugh.
