Homeless Man Murders Pace Student Then Watches Horror Flick In His Dorm

Homeless Man Strangles Pace Student, Watches Horror Flick

Jeromie Cancel, 22, was charged Tuesday night with the suffocation murder of a Pace University honors student.

Kevin Pravia, 19, a college honors student, was found dead in his bed by his Manhattan roommate Sunday night. He had an electrical cord wrapped around his neck and apparently was suffocated with a pillow during a robbery by a stranger he invited to his apartment, police said Tuesday.

Cancel claimed Pravia approached him in Union Square park around 6 a.m. Saturday looking for drugs and the two went to his apartment in the Chelsea neighborhood. After the slaying, Cancel stayed in the apartment to watch the gory horror film “Saw” before leaving before 11 a.m., police said. [WNBC]

And, like a medieval king his descendant rises to take his place upon his death.

To commemorate this historic event, Sports Illustrated has released a list of the five greatest college mascots of all time. [Asylum]
