UConn mourns stabbing death of Jasper Howard - Yahoo! News

UConn mourns stabbing death of football player - Yahoo! News: "The day after Jasper Howard, 20, of Miami, was stabbed to death in a fight following an on-campus, university sanctioned dance, police Monday continued to interview those attending the dance in search for possible witnesses. Investigators had not identified a suspect or released the name of a second stabbing victim, who was treated and released from a local hospital.

Edsall said he and the team were heartbroken and devastated over the loss of Howard, a junior and the team's starting cornerback who came to the school to get away from the violence on the streets of his hometown. He was the first person in his family to go to college.

'I know Jasper loved the University of Connecticut and he loved his teammates,' Edsall said. 'And he loved the opportunity he was getting here at UConn.'"
