Wesleyan University will resume normal operations today, after a tense day in which most activities were called off after police found journals of a man suspected of murdering a student on Wednesday, and the suspect's writings indicated that he wanted to kill other students, especially Jewish students. The university issued security alerts to those on the campus, and informed students when the suspect turned himself in to police in a nearby town late Thursday. Wesleyan is providing counseling services and also pledging flexibility on final exams and academic work, given that students' lives were interrupted by the tragedy of a fellow student's murder and then considerable campus fear as they were finishing up a semester's work. An article in The New York Times explores how the suspect, Stephen Morgan, met his victim, Johanna Justin-Jinich, two years ago when both were enrolled in a summer program at New York University. At the time, she reported that he made harassing calls and sent her harassing e-mail messages.
