GENESEO, N.Y. -- Three young people, all current or former student-athletes at the State University of New York in Geneseo, were found stabbed to death in an apparent murder-suicide, police said Monday.

Colin Kingston, 24, was distraught over the break up of his three-relationship with girlfriend Kelsey Annese, according to Geneseo Police Spokesman Jeffrey Szczesniak. Kingston called his father early Sunday and said he'd "brought harm" to Annese; his father called police.

Police went to Annese's residence and found the bodies of Kingston, 21-year-old Annese,  and 24-year-old Matthew Hutchinson.

Police said there were no signs of forced entry or a struggle, indicating Kingston may have surprised Annese and Hutchinson.

Kingston had bought a large knife at a retail store and police think he used that in the killings. He had also reportedly made suicidal comments to people but never made threats toward others.

SUNY-Geneseo is a picture-book campus in a historic part of New York state.

The website said Annese was a senior and a member of the women's basketball team who was an education/Spanish major with a psychology minor.

Hutchinson, a senior, was a member of the hockey team who was majoring in geography. He belonged to the Geneseo Volunteer Fire department.

Kingston, who had previously played on the school basketball team, lived in Geneseo but had not registered for spring classes.
