Police seek man in university nursing student’s death

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) — Police investigating the death of a New York nursing student say they want to question a man who flew to Nicaragua before her body was found.

Authorities say Orlando E. Tercero is a U.S. citizen and fellow nursing student at Binghamton University, 140 miles (225 kilometers) northwest of New York City.

Tercero is a person of interest in the slaying of 22-year-old Haley Anderson, of Westbury, on Long Island. Police say Tercero had a previous relationship with her.

Binghamton police found Anderson’s body at an off-campus residence when they were called to check on her welfare on Friday. Her death was ruled a homicide, but police haven’t said how or why she was killed.

It can’t be determined if Tercero has a lawyer to comment for him.
