Pranksters Claim Killing Roomie in Calls to 2 Colleges

Woman makes late-night calls to security

Two Connecticut colleges received bizarre and disturbing calls Saturday, each from a woman who said she thought she killed her roommate. Both calls were bogus, according to Fairfield police, and whoever made them could be charged if cops find her.

Around 2:45 a.m. Saturday, a female told Sacred Heart security she thought she killed her roommate in Merton Hall.

Security and Fairfield police rushed off to search the dormitory. There was no body. The only person there was a resident assistant.

As Sacred Heart investigated, Fairfield University received a similar call. A woman said she stabbed her roommate and was in Fairfield Hall, the Connecticut Post reports. There is no dorm by that name. 

This time, the caller left a name and phone number and police located a woman by the same name with a Bridgeport address.

When they checked her phone, they realized she is not involved.
