Last tweet: "Should have known"

'Should have known': The chilling final tweet of college student, 21, who was beaten to death by her high school boyfriend after he came to visit her

Hours before 18-year-old college student was brutally beaten to death in her dorm room by her high school sweetheart, she wrote a final, chilling final tweet: 'Should have known.'

The Alexandra Kogut had been carrying on a long distance relationship after with Clayton S Whittemore, 21, after she went to school at the College at Brockport near Rochester, New York, 150 miles away from their hometown of New Hartford.
Whittemore, a student at Utica College near his hometown, was arrested at a Thruway rest stop near Syracuse, 100 miles east, about an hour later. He told state troopers he intentionally killed Kogut, according to a criminal complaint. No motive was given.
campus police chief Robert Kehoe told ABC affiliate WHAM.  'When a young lady who's a college student and apparently in a safe environment, is brutally murdered as this young lady was, it's certainly a tragedy for her family and friends and the entire Brockport college community.'

 Alexandra-Kogut Rest in peace.
