New documents reveal jealousy is to blame for a violent stabbing during a drunken threesome at Yale University last May which resulted in one student committing suicide by jumping out of a ninth floor window.

According to police, Tyler Carlisle and Alexander Michaud, both 21, were having sex with a girl when Carlisle picked up a knife and stabbed Michaud in the throat. Carlisle then began pacing back and forth in the room before jumping out of the window and falling to his death.

From the New York Daily News:

Both men — who were from Manchester, N.H., and members of Yale’s conservative campus group Party of the Right, according to the student-run newspaper — were in an off-campus apartment on May 26 with the female student when things turned violent.

Carlisle, who recently graduated after studying philosophy, is said to have become “jealous” of Michaud and consequently grabbed a knife off a nearby nightstand before wounding Michaud in his upper throat. Michaud told police he next remembers finding himself sitting in the living room where the female began pressing a T-shirt to his wound.

Carlisle was meanwhile said to have been pacing back and forth, apologizing, before going to the ninth floor apartment’s window and saying he was going to jump.

Michaud said he didn’t see the recent graduate jump. His body was later recovered six stories below, on a third-floor terrace.

When police arrived they said they found the two surviving students naked in the apartment. The woman was described as “too distraught at the time of the incident to give a statement.”

The incident left Yale students in shock. Some said they believed Carlisle was poised to be a senator one day.

I was trying to find an angle for this story that would lighten the mood, but holy shit is it dark. I can’t imagine being a parent of any of these kids and getting this phone call. Even the girl, whose father now knows his daughter is down to be the base of an Eiffel Tower.

Luckily, Michaud fully recovered from this incident.
