    Four months ago, a tragedy struck the otherwise quaint Ivy-League college town of New Haven, Connecticut.

    Police arrived at an apartment to find Yale student Alexander Michaud naked and sitting on a chair as he bled profusely from his neck. An unidentified woman, also naked, was tending his wounds.

    When police asked what happened, she pointed toward an open window. Eight stories below on a terrace lay the lifeless, naked, body of Yale student Tyler Carlise.

    A New Haven Police report, recently obtained by Gawker, indicates the May 26 incident was rooted in a threesome gone terribly wrong.

    “Michaud, [the woman], and Carlisle had all been drinking,” reads the report. “The three of them were having sex in the bedroom, and Carlisle started to get jealous of Michaud and [the woman]. Carlisle grabbed a knife that was on the nightstand next to the bed. Carlisle stabbed Michaud in the neck area.

    “Michaud does not remember how he got to the living room,” the report continues. “Michaud sat on the chair in the living room and told [the woman] to call ‘911.’ [She] grabbed a white T-shirt and held it to Michaud’s neck to stop the bleeding.

    Carlisle then went to the living room and started pacing back and forth, saying, ‘I’m sorry.’ Carlisle sat on the windowsill and said he was going to jump. Michaud did not see Carlisle jump out of the window.”

    After the incident, police said “they had a pretty strong sense” about what happened, but kept the investigation under tight wraps.

    Some close to Carlisle said they didn’t need answers.

    “Knowing the reason behind it, it still isn’t going to lessen the pain,” childhood friend Liz Kulig told the Union Leader. “He’s still gone.”

    Carlise studied philosophy at Yale and he had emerged as a conservative political leader on campus. Days before his death, he graduated and enlisted in the Army. Michaud was a successful undergraduate who published the Yale Free Press.
