An 18 years old university student Dominique Frazier has been stabbed to death by her 19 years old roommate Alexis Simpson. The victim was stabbed with a pair of scissors because she was alleged to be playing her too loud. Dominique is from Washington and was a student at the Bowie State University, Maryland.
The accused has been charged with first and second degree murder as well as first degree-assault after her victim was found dead by the police. The suspect absconded after the occurrence but later turned herself up to the police. According to a state police, there were two other roommates in the dorm when the incident took place.
The school has cancelled today’s lectures as a result of the incident. This is to allow them organise a community gathering for the students and staff to have a moment of silence as well as share their grief and support.
According to the university’s spokesman, Cassandra Robinson, “There was a visible calm and quiet solitude, even in a room with hundreds of people. ’Everyone is in their own way trying to deal with the magnitude of this.
‘Certainly whenever an event of this nature takes place, it gives us an opportunity to pause, reflect, and re-examine everything we’re doing”.
Nineteen years old Damial Fletcher was friends to the victim and has this to say “‘it’s an eye opener. If you have a dispute, it’s not worth fighting over. Dominique lost her life over something trivial.
‘We come to college to mature ourselves, but sometimes still act like children. She was so popular and out-going. If you were having the worst day of your life, she’d make you just laugh.’
