Man Dead After Stabbing in Front of Olin Hall on Sunday Morning

The Ithaca Police Department is opening a homicide investigation after one of two men stabbed on campus was pronounced dead at Cayuga Medical Center.

Cornell Police found two men stabbed in front of Olin Hall, while responding to a report of a large fight at approximately 1:57 a.m. on Sunday. After arriving at the scene, first responders began medical treatment and later located the weapon and secured the area.

Neither of the men who were stabbed were affiliated with Cornell. One was transported to a Cayuga Medical Center for “treatment of serious injuries.” He was later pronounced dead, according to the Ithaca Police Department. The other was flown to Upstate Medical Center and later released.

Brooklyn undergrad danced shortly before...prompted attack

Before a bump on a shoulder likely sparked his fatal stabbing, Brooklyn undergrad Anthony Nazaire cut up the dance floor inside Cornell University's student union.

Exclusive video shot shortly before his murder shows the Ithaca College sophomore near the center of a circle of partygoers, dancing to the beat of a mixtape track from Bronx rapper A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie.

Others at the student-organized party at Cornell's Willard Straight Hall held up phones to record Nazaire's moves, unaware their videos would provide some of the last images of his short life.

Hundred attended the orientation week party, cops said. When it was over, Nazaire's pal Rahiem Williams inadvertently knocked into another reveler, his heartbroken sister said Monday.

"He was with his friend, his friend bumped a girl by accident and he apologized," older sister Kiara Nazaire, 24, told the Daily News.

"Both of them apologized, even my brother apologized, and he didn't bump the girl," the stunned sister said.

Williams also got stabbed in the bloody brawl but survived, she said.

He later called Kiara crying, saying he felt responsible and wanted to apologize, she told The News.

"It's not his fault," Kiara said Monday. "They didn't ask for it. I know my brother - my brother's not gonna argue with any girls."

Nazaire, 19, had just returned to school after spending his summer break back home in Flatbush, his family said.

He spoke to his mom by phone moments before leaving to attend the party, mother Katia Toussaint, 40, told The News.

He vowed it would be his one night out before buckling down and focusing on his studies, she said.

"I'm going to a party for the first and last time for the year," Nazaire told his mom, according to Toussaint. "You know I'm coming in early. I don't stay out."

He never returned, leaving his mom "numb" with grief, she said.

"All I know is that my friends went to a party and tried to go to an after party and they had a large group and separated. They had an altercation because (Williams) bumped into a girl," Glenni Rodriguez, a fellow Ithaca College sophomore who provided the dancing video, told The News.

Nazaire's sister said cops told the family they have one suspect in the senseless slaying.

A knife that may have been the murder weapon was recovered from the scene.

"If you have anything - don't be a coward, don't feel like it's snitching. Send us the pictures," Kiara said Monday in a desperate plea to any witnesses.

"Anthony didn't deserve this. He wasn't a troubled kid," she said.

Ithaca police receive video, ask for more as Cornell homicide investigation continues

ITHACA, N.Y. — The Ithaca Police Department said it has received video footage regarding the stabbing death of an Ithaca College student last month on Cornell University's campus, but it is urging the public to submit any other videos people may have of the fight.

Police said though they have received videos, they still want more in order to "help put the final pieces of the puzzle together."

Anthony Nazaire, 19, a sophomore at the Ithaca College School of Business Administration, died from his injuries after being stabbed during what police described as a large brawl on Aug. 28 at Cornell.

Another Ithaca College student was also stabbed during the incident and taken to Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse. Police have not identified the victim, but said he was treated and released.

It is not clear what concrete updates have been made in the investigation or what details police have already found on the videos. The Ithaca Police Department could not be immediately reached for comment.

Ithaca police are asking anyone with more information, or who may have been near the College Avenue and Campus Road intersection around 2 a.m. Aug. 28, to call investigators at 607-272-3245

Investigation continues into fatal stabbing

The investigation continues into the fatal stabbing of Ithaca College student Anthony Nazaire.

Just over two months have passed since Nazaire was killed outside of a party on Cornell's campus. The Ithaca Police Department has made no arrests, but investigators continue to piece together what happened, Jamie Williamson, public information officer for the IPD, said.

On Aug. 28, Nazaire was fatally stabbed after a party sponsored by a fraternity at Willard Straight Hall at Cornell University. Nazaire was a sophomore at Ithaca College in the business school and Brooklyn native, who friends and professors remember as an ambitious business student.

Hundreds of people attended the event, which was part of a series of orientation events for black students by Cornell's Black Students United group, the Associated Press reported. A number of fights broke out after the event, police said. Another student was also injured.

$100K cash bail set in Cornell murder case

ITHACA, N.Y. -- A Freeville man accused of murdering Ithaca College student Anthony Nazaire in August made an appearance at Tompkins County Court on Friday afternoon where his official bail was set.

Nagee Green, 23, is charged with second-degree murder and second-degree assault after he allegedly stabbed Nazaire to death during a street brawl at Cornell University this summer.

He was represented by attorney Joseph Joch, who said there was "a great deal of inconsistency in witness descriptions," and that Green "deserves to be out on bail."

Joch proposed a $25,000 cash bail to be set for Green. District Attorney Andrew Bonavia argued that the case was too high-profile for the bail to be set that low, and said there should be, "substantial bail required due to the nature of the case."

Judge John Rowley set bail for Green at $100,000, with a $250,000 bond.

Nagee Green to get new trial, jury selection set for next week:

Jury selection is expected to begin for the second trial of a man accused of stabbing and killing an Ithaca College student.

23-year-old Nagee Green was put on trial earlier this year following the fatal stabbing of Anthony Nazaire in August of last year, facing charges of second-degree murder as well as assault. But while a jury convicted Green on the assault charge, they were deadlocked on the murder charge.

According to the Tompkins County District Attorney’s Office, selection for the jury in the new trial will start next week. Officials say they’ll once again charge Green with murder, but haven’t pointed to any new evidence they think might sway the new jury.
