A 22-year-old student from Texas studying at the University of Mississippi got charged in the murder of a female Ole Miss student. He was taken into custody on the 22nd after being spotted at a gas station in Tennessee. When the student got arrested, there appeared to be blood on his shirt. The suspect’s father still maintains his son is innocent.
B. Theesfeld of Fort Worth, TX, was booked into the Lafayette County Jail on the 22nd and charged with murder for the death of Alexandria “Ally” Kostial, the 21-year-old student.
A. Kostial was found dead on the 20th near a lake in Harmontown, about 20miles outside of Ole Miss. Specifics about the murder have not been released, and it’s unknown how Kostial died. What we do know is that Kostial was shot eight times.
A couple of days after Kostial’s body was found, officials arrived at a gas station about 60 miles away in Memphis. They tracked Theesfeld’s cellphone and credit card, which led them there. Surveillance evidence from the gas station shows Theesfeld with an Ole Miss t-shirt on as he enters the gas station.
Memphis police swarmed the area after receiving a tip from a local patrol officer who spotted the pickup truck that matched the description of Theesfeld’s pickup truck. They arrested him and took the 22-year-old into custody.
When arrested, Theesfeld had not only clothes that appeared to have blood on them, but also a weapon inside the vehicle that law enforcement officials discovered.
The university confirmed that Theesfeld was not only a student but had been suspended by the School of Business Administration. Also, Theesfeld participated in the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program in Texas. He graduated from the college prep academy with his high school diploma.
After he graduated, he went to Ole Miss, where he studied marketing.
April 2017, Theesfeld was also arrested for having a fake ID and being publicly intoxicated, according to police records. A spokesperson told the television station he was involved in another case, but it was removed from his record.
Daniel Theesfeld, his father, said in a statement to WMC-TV that he believes his son is innocent and didn’t kill Kostial. “I know my son is innocent. I can’t share anything now, but I would ask everybody to please give him the presumption of innocence until proven otherwise.”
Kostial, working towards her bachelor’s degree in marketing, also was attending summer school and was teaching fitness classes at the university, Keith Kostial, her father posted on facebook.
The last place she was seen was at a bar in Oxford, where she apparently did not go in. Instead, it was reported that Kostial went home around midnight, Then suddenly left the house again, not saying anything to her roommates. It’s still currently unknown how Kostial got to Harmontown.
“We will not release any details about this ongoing investigation at this time,” Lafayette County Sheriff’s Major Alan Wilburn said Tuesday.
University of Mississippi Interim Chancellor Larry Sparks said that Kostial’s death would not define the Ole Miss campus community. “We must draw strength from what brings us together as a community, even as we grieve this unspeakable loss,” he added.
