    Wagner said that the attack occurred between 4 and 6 a.m. yesterday. A call to the county emergency center came in at 6:44 a.m., and police arrested Schaeffer, of Oley, outside the home shortly after.

    Police confiscated a "knifelike" weapon, but would not elaborate

    ==================================

    It sounds like he might have called 911 himself.

    Adams County District Attorney Shawn Wagner said Friday the autopsy concluded 19-year-old sophomore Emily Rachel Silverstein was still alive when she was stabbed.

    Wagner says the examination showed she was stabbed repeatedly with a knife blade nearly 5 inches long.

    Poor girl, I'm trying to find a picture of her.

    ETA: this link has a video on the right that shows both Emily and her murderer.

    Heartbreaking article.

    Dermody visited the Silverstein family yesterday and described their grief as unfathomably deep.

    "There was no way to talk to the parents. There was nothing to say. The grief was just too tremendous, too overwhelming. She was crying, the wife, from a depth I had not known existed. You couldn't console. You couldn't say anything."

    =========================================

    this article has a wealth of information.

    Authorities said Kevin R. Schaeffer, also a Gettysburg College student, choked Ms. Silverstein, 19, a sophomore from Roosevelt, N.J., early Thursday morning and then stabbed her in the neck with a steak knife. He sat with her for 15 minutes before putting her in a bathtub, according to a police affidavit.

    Mr. Schaeffer, 21, of Oley, Berks County, confessed to the crime, according to the affidavit. He told police he had been drinking that evening but was not intoxicated. He said he had recently stopped taking Zoloft, an anti-depressant, the affidavit said.
