(Newser) – Stephen Morgan sent slain Wesleyan student Johanna Justin-Jinich 38 “insulting” and “unwanted” emails during a brief summer program the two attended at New York University in 2007, according to a police report that quoted an expletive-tinged email as reading, “You’re going to have a lot more problems down the road if you can’t take any criticism, Johanna.” Justin-Jinich reported the harassment to the university, but didn’t press charges, the New York Times reports.

The two lived in student housing during the 6-week program, called Sexual Diversity in Society, but not in the same building. Morgan has no apparent criminal history, police said, but chunks of his past remain unknown. A man who rented an apartment to Morgan said he was “full of anger.” Though he showed no evidence of anti-Semitism, he did say he disliked Vietnamese people, noted another. Police are also trying to pinpoint any link between the pair in Colorado, where they both lived.
