GENESEO – The site of the sudden, unthinkable loss of three young lives on Sunday morning was released by police Sunday night and turned back over to the care of the property owner.
Still, SUNY Geneseo said that all student tenants of 18 Wadsworth Street have made plans to stay elsewhere.
“The College is offering alternative housing to all residents of 18 Wadsworth Street,” said SUNY Geneseo in a statement. “The students currently have made their own alternate arrangements, but they may select on-campus housing at any time.”
Geneseo Police Chief Eric Osganian said that police have left the scene and Wadsworth Street is now open to vehicle traffic.
On Sunday, Kelsey Annese, 21, of Webster, NY, Matthew Hutchinson, 24, of Vancouver, British Columbia, and Colin Kingston, 24, of Geneseo were found deceased inside of 18 Wadsworth Street after a 911 call dispatched police officers to the house at about 6 a.m.
Annese and Hutchinson were enrolled students at SUNY Geneseo and Kingston was a former student.
Annese was a member of the SUNY Geneseo basketball team and Hutchinson was a volunteer firefighter with Geneseo Fire and Ambulance.
Geneseo Police Officer Jeffrey Szcezniak said that it is unclear how, if at all, the deceased knew each other. He added that information recovered at the scene indicates that one of the deceased may be a perpetrator and the others victims.
Police could not confirm any further information about the incident until their investigation verifies it. However, Szcezniak did confirm that a knife was recovered at the scene.
Further information on the incident will become available at 2 p.m. on Monday at a press conference with the Livingston County District Attorney’s Office and representatives of SUNY Geneseo.
