No plans to step up security
at Columbia despite murder
Washington Square News
New York University
NEW YORK (U-WIRE) - Last week’s
brutal murder of a Columbia University stu
dent in her dormitory room will not result in
security changes there - at least not until stu
dents call for such changes, officials said.
Columbia Vice President for Public Affairs
Virgil Renzulli said administrators will talk
with students to ascertain a general opinion of
dormitory safety, but there are no plans to
change dormitory policies.
“(The murder) was not a security break
down,” he said.
The body of sophomore Kathleen Roskot,
19, was discovered by concerned Columbia
officials Saturday after she failed to show up
for a previously-scheduled event, according to
She died of a stab wound to the neck, a
police spokesman said, and though the investi
gation is continuing, her former boyfriend,
Timothy Nelford, 23, is believed to have killed
Nelford leapt into the path of an oncoming
subway train last Saturday, only an hour after
Roskot’s body was discovered. In his pocket
were Roskot’s wallet and other personal pos
sessions, police said.
Despite the sensational coverage of the
crime, which made the front pages of most
newspapers in New York City and stunned the
Columbia campus in Momingside Heights, die
university does not plan to alter its residence
hall security policies, Renzulli said.
“Our current procedures were arrived at
after student consultation,” Renzulli said, and
Columbia administrators are loath to change
them without first measuring the attitude of
students about crime on campus.
Renzulli said the prevailing opinion, and
the opinion of the university, was that the mur
der, though tragic, was not the result of a failure
on Columbia’s part.
“Nothing went wrong” with the security
procedures at Ruggles Hall, where Roskot was
murdered, he said. “(Security) was not the
NYU spokesman John Beckman agreed
with this assessment of the crime. “This person
was signed in by the young lady who he killed,”
Beckman said. “I don’t think it lessens the
tragedy. But I do think that it’s a different
Beckman indicated that NYU officials
have no plans to alter security policies here in
the wake of Roskot’s killing, saying that safety
in the University’s residence hall system is
Columbia’s dormitory security closely
resembles that of NYU. Renzulli said the cur
rent procedure at Columbia dormitory build
ings require residents to appear at the guard’s
desk in the lobby of a budding and sign in a
guest. The guest must leave a piece of photo
identification at the desk, he said.
