Penn State Altoona Student Murdered

Margo Davis, a sophomore at Penn State Altoona, was found dead in the trunk of her Pontiac Grand Am on Wednesday afternoon. The Collegian has the full story.

Police have arrested Sean Louis Allen, a nineteen year old man from Holidaysburg, and charged him with criminal homicide.

Officers searching Allen’s house found two garbage bags at the foot of his bed, which contained several stained towels, a beige Sonoma shirt, rubber gloves with suspected blood, a cell phone and several paper towels, police said.

Police also found two used condoms, two condom wrappers and a smashed Mag-Lite flashlight, according to the complaint.

The Collegian interviewed Penn State Altoona Chancellor Lori J. Bechtel-Wherry about the tragedy. The video is viewable below.
