Motive unclear for University of Texas stabbings

The scene of a stabbing on UT campus Monday

"He grabbed him by the shoulder and shoved the knife in it". White was arrested as he was approaching another group of students, still brandishing a hunting knife, the police said.

Asked if he was hearing voices, he informed police his mind told him to "tell the truth and withhold any action that he did because it really didn't happen", the document says.

The student who died was the first the suspect had targeted as he walked, expressionless, through a crowd of students, kicking one woman out of the way to get to the first victim, the police said.

Biology junior Kendrex White, the student facing murder charges in the death of undergraduate studies freshman Harrison Brown, told police he did not remember Monday's attack, according to an affidavit filed Wednesday morning. Harrison was an inspiration to everyone around him. We were Blessed and honored to have known him.

Former high school classmate Angela Bonilla, who now attends UT, told the Herald that "no one expected him to do this".

A student who said he knows White socially, William Verastegui, said the suspect had always seemed friendly.

Joshua Anderson, a University of Texas student who had classes with White, said that White is "very friendly and talkative".

"He was involved all the time and he was at every meeting", Crawford said. "He would never be upset or sad in person". White, who was booked on a murder charge, will face additional counts, authorities said. He was always nice, had plenty of friends and was in the worldwide baccalaureate program.

"It was unusual", he said.

"It was unusual. He attended pretty regularly", said Springer.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise funds for one of the victims of Monday's stabbing rampage at the University of Texas at Austin, identified as engineering student and ROTC member Stuart Bayliss. None of the other victims have been identified at this time. A friend of Brown's told officers that he saw the 19-year-old walking out of the gym that afternoon.

As UT-Austin students struggle to deal with their grief, they have gravitated to a video Brown posted of him singing the song "I'll Be" with his own guitar accompaniment. He killed his wife and mother the previous night.

Furthermore, Chief Carter said it would be "premature" to discuss White's motive. A text-message alert was sent out about 20 minutes later.

"We recognize there is tremendous pain among the student body", Fenves said.

On Monday, when Springer heard about the stabbing and saw a photo of White being arrested, he was shocked.

There are no words to describe my sense of loss. "As the investigations into these heinous crimes continue, I have offered all available state resources to both Dallas and the University of Texas to assist in any effort".

AUSTIN, Texas- Today, The University of Texas at Austin was faced with a tragic situation that ended with one student dead and three injured. Since then, the university has made extensive security upgrades on the campus. The area is near a gym and recreation center and one of the school's largest dorm and classroom complexes.

Responding to the 1:49 p.m. call about a stabbing, campus police saw the suspect walking away from a person lying on the ground, Carter said. It said: "Tuition pays for bombs". Meanwhile, unfounded rumours of a bomb threat at one building came just as false rumours of a stabbing in West Campus fuelled social media hysteria.
