Man arrested in Nicaragua for murder of nursing student

Murdered nursing student was mired in love triangle

The man sought for questioning in the death of a college student from Westbury has been detained in Nicaragua, four days after her body was found at a residence off the Binghamton University campus, Nicaraguan police officials said Tuesday.

The suspect in the death of Binghamton University student Haley Anderson has been arrested according to two Nicaraguan news outlets.

Police declared her death a homicide after an autopsy was conducted at Lourdes Hospital in Binghamton on Saturday.

Anderson was last seen around 4 a.m. Thursday while she was with roommates, who later alerted cops for a welfare check after they had not heard from her, police say.

Authorities searching for the person of interest in the killing of a NY college student have trained their focus on Nicaragua after police say it was determined her ex-boyfriend took a flight to the Central America country hours after her death.

Investigators identified her ex-boyfriend, 22-year-old Orlando Tercero, as a person of interest in the case.

Nicaragua is about 3,800 miles away from Binghamton, and the average flight from JFK takes about seven to eight hours. If he has dual citizenship, according to Zikuski, there's a chance the country may not extradite him.

Tercero allegedly "fled the United States via worldwide air to Nicaragua prior to the discovery of Haley Anderson's deceased body", according to a statement released by police.

Anderson decided not to press charges after Tercero agreed to pay for the damage, which involved auto tires, the outlet reports.

The two had dated and a friend described Tercero and "obsessive and insane".

It's unknown at this time if Tercero will be brought back to the U.S.
