Police report: The Yale conservative who committed a stabbing-suicide was also involved in a threesome

When Yale graduate and conservative activist Tyler Carlisle attacked his friend, Yale undergraduate Alexander Michaud, with a knife last May and then jumped to his death from a 9th-story window, Yale University was puzzled. But now that Gawker has obtained the police report from the New Haven Police Department, the details of the incident — and the police’s “pretty strong sense” of Carlisle’s motives — have become much clearer.
According to the report, the men “were engaged in a threesome with a female Yale undergraduate, whose attentions on Michaud apparently inspired Carlisle to stab his longtime friend in the neck and then kill himself.” Michaud offered this statement to police:
Michaud, [redacted], and Carlisle had all been drinking. 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.” [Gawker]

Previously, the presence of the female at the scene of the crime had not been reported or associated with the case, and thus her name has been redacted. The incident happened at Carlisle’s apartment on a street running through the center of campus, and was reportedly fueled by drinking. Becca Stanek
