Greater Tragedy Averted at Wesleyan

A disturbed stalker who is accused of murdering a student at Wesleyan University surrendered to police yesterday in Connecticut. A greater tragedy was averted, since it seems that the suspect, Stephen Morgan, 29, was filled with hate for Jewish people and this fueled his larger plan to target Jewish students at Wesleyan for a murderous attack.

Prior to the capture of the suspect, the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford issued a warning to Jewish agencies, organizations and synagogues in Greater Hartford and surrounding towns, including Middletown’s Congregation Adath Israel, located a block from the murder site, to “implement heightened security measures at their institutions, be aware of unusual or suspicious behavior or persons and trust their instincts.” There are over 600 students at this school that identify as Jewish.
