New details of a stabbing/suicide that took place last spring near Yale University paint a confusing and sexually ambiguous picture of the students involved, according to documents from the New Haven Police Department.

In late May, the college town was shocked when Yale graduate and conservative activist Tyler Carlisle stabbed his friend, undergraduate Alexander Michaud, in his apartment, then jumped out of his ninth-story window to his death.

Details were sparse at the time, and nobody close to Tyler could determine the cause of the incident.

That is, until a recently surfaced police report filled in the context.

The two male students, it turns out, were not alone at the time of the crime. They were having a threesome with an unnamed female Yale undergrad.

Carlisle apparently grew jealous of the attention she was giving Michaud, prompting the attack and subsequent suicide.

Gawker reports that, “Both men grew up in Manchester, New Hampshire and were members of Yale’s Party of the Right, a hardcore right-wing division of the campus debating society.”

People who knew them gave no indication that any sexual relationship was ever rumored.

According to a police interview:

The three of them were having sex in the bedroom, and Carlisle started to get jealous of Michaud and [redacted]. 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. Michaud sat on the chair in the living room and told [redacted] to call “911.” [Redacted] 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 window sill and said he was going to jump. Michaud did not see Carlisle jump out of the window.

Why a knife was on the nightstand in the first place may never be known.
