A police official says the killing of a student at a suburban New York college was an "isolated incident" linked to "family matters."
Marraccini said officers found the female student's body at faculty housing on Monday after getting a 911 call from school security.
There was no immediate arrest. The victim's name has not been made public.
Manhattanville College is located in Purchase, about 27 miles northeast of Manhattan. The liberal arts school has about 3,000 undergraduate and graduate students.
