In May, Yale University was hit by a shocking stabbing and suicide involving recent graduate and conservative activist Tyler Carlisle and his friend, undergraduate Alexander Michaud. At the time, few details were known about the mysterious incident which ended with Michaud being stabbed and Carlisle committing suicide.

However, newly released documents from the New Haven Police Department reveal the friends participated in a threesome with another undergraduate that went wrong. According to Gawker, a police incident report reveals the woman they were with allegedly gave Michaud more attention during the threesome, causing Carlisle to stab his friend in the neck and then jumping to his death from the 9th floor.

The new information was reportedly known by those closest to the pair of Manchester, New Hampshire natives, but was not reported by the press. Both men were members of the Yale's Party of the Right, with mutual friends "unaware of anything but friendship and intellectual camaraderie" between the two.

When questioned by reporters, authorities said they had "a pretty strong sense" of what had occurred but decided to remain quiet until the investigation was completed, The Washington Post reported. The Post spoke to a close female friend of Carlisle's after the incident, who said: "The people who need to know will or already do know. I can't even express how much anguish would be avoided if the press would leave us our privacy."

The incident report, written by three police officers who responded to the incident, revealed the three were in the middle of their alcohol-fueled tryst when Carlisle stabbed Michaud after becoming "jealous" of him and the other student. One of the officers, Officer Tiffany Ortiz, described the scene when officials arrived.

Michaud later spoke to authorities and told them that after the stabbing, Carlisle apologised for striking him and said he was going to jump. Michaud, however, admitted he did not see his friend jump out of the window, Ortiz said.

The newly released police report also stated that the female participant, whose name was redacted by Gawker to protect her identity, was "too distraught at the time of the incident to give a statement." Since the incident, Michaud has largely refused to comment to the press.

"The Post can know that I have been released from the hospital, but other than that, I'd like to keep the details of the incident among intimates," Michaud emailed The Post.
