Page 16 Burglars hit 3 unlocked apartments By Jon Harris Asst. News Editor Three apartments were burglarized early Sunday morning on South Campus, said Department of Public Safety Chief Tony Callisto. The burglaries occurred on Small Road, Lambreth Lane and Farm Acre Road, he said. The apartments were entered through unlocked doors, Callisto said. “All of these were nonforced entries,” he said. “These were preventable burglaries. Every one of them.” All three burglaries occurred in the middle of the night at about the same time, so it’s likely the same people committed the burglaries, he said. Callisto said it is unclear if students or community members are responsible for the burglaries, but he said the suspects were going around looking for unlocked doors and found some Sunday morning.

Tom Connellan of the Syracuse Police Department. Old Stonehouse Road is just off Nottingham Road, approximately two miles from the entrance to South Campus. Alcott’s death has been ruled a sui- cide, but the exact cause of death has not yet been released, Connellan said. Information about the cause of death will be released after the autopsy is completed. There is no indication of criminal activity, he said. Alcott, 22, was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity and a former student in the Martin J. Whitman School of Management. Alcott, who enrolled at SU in fall 2009 but did not return to campus this academic year, was a Syracuse resident. The location where Alcott’s body was found was not the location of his residence, Connellan said. This is a “very private and very painful matter for the family,” said Connellan, who expressed a wish that the community would respect the family. Because Alcott retained ties to the campus,  Thomas Wolfe, senior vice president and dean of student HELP HOTLINES 1-800-SUICIDE 1-800-273-TALK affairs, said the SU community wanted to reach out to support the Alcott family and the students who knew him. “We’re reaching out to all the communities where he spent time when he was a student here,” said see alcott page 4
