An alcohol-fueled threesome gone wrong appears to be the motive behind a stabbing at Yale last May.

Recently graduated, Tyler Carlisle, 21, committed suicide by jumping from a sixth story window shortly after stabbing fellow classmate Alexander Michaud, then 21, on May 26, 2015. Michaud survived his stab wounds, according to local Connecticut WFSB news. The police report of the incident, obtained by Gawker, said Carlisle, Michaud, and an unnamed female had all decided to engage in a threesome after a night of drinking. At some point during the threesome Carlisle became jealous of Michaud. Carlisle then grabbed a knife on the nightstand and stabbed him.

Carlisle reportedly paced around the apartment saying “I’m sorry” as the female dialed 911. He then jumped to his death as police were en-route.

Medics arrived to officially pronounce Carlisle dead and transport Michaud to a hospital where he was treated for a puncture wound to the upper left neck. (RELATED: College President Carjacked Just Before Possible Threesome With ‘Luscious’ And ‘Brittany’)

The Yale Daily News has previously reported that both men were part of the conservative organization Party of the Right. Carlisle listed on his Linkedin that he worked for Rick Santorum’s 2012 presidential campaign and he majored in philosophy.

The stabbing and suicide came as a surprise to those that knew Carlisle. Liz Kulig, a close friend of Carlisle, told the Union Leader that, “Knowing him, it was very shocking. He had a lot to live for, and it was nothing I would have expected.”

No details were given to police at the time of the attack of why Carlisle was sent into a jealous rage. It is also not clear if Michaud and Carlisle knew the unnamed female very well.

According to Michaud’s Linkedin, he is scheduled to graduate from Yale in 2017.
