Her death was ruled a homicide the next day, after an autopsy was performed.
Although the circumstances around her death have not yet been revealed, police said that she was last seen alive around 4 a.m. on Thursday and was with her roommates before she went missing.
Tercero is a United States citizen and was also studying nursing. Tercero allegedly "fled the United States via worldwide air to Nicaragua prior to the discovery of Haley Anderson's deceased body", according to a statement released by police.
Spectrum News reached out to the Broome County district attorney, who could not comment at this time. "Though we can not bring Haley Anderson back, we will fight for justice", he said.
The statement indicated the office is working with Binghamton Police Department investigators to get the case against Tercero ready for a grand jury to consider.
"Now Nicaragua does have the discretion as to whether or not they want to honor the extradition request", said attorney Peter Charnetsky. In 2013, Nicaraguan police arrested Eric Justin Toth, a fugitive on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted suspected of child pornography offences, and handed him over to usa authorities.
"Anyone who knew Haley Anderson knew how her energy lit up every room she walked into, whether it was our lives as her friends or the lives of her patients when she volunteered as a nursing student", a loved one wrote on a GoFundMe page created to offset funeral costs. She lived about a mile away from the SUNY Binghamton campus, officials said, and worked as a barista at a local cafe in Binghamton, according to her LinkedIn profile. "Haley's laughter was infectious and her child-like spirit touched all the people around her". "Without her even knowing it".
