George Huguely, a UVA Lacrosse player, has been arrested for the murder of fellow team member and senior Yeardley Love, found Monday morning by a roommate.

Huguely, who reportedly had a past relationship with Love, was arrested at his apartment at 6 am and is currently in the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail. Authorities began investigating Love’s death after a roommate found the 22-year-old Yeardley in her bed and unresponsive with obvious signs of physical trauma. Love was a fourth-year Virginia lacrosse player, as is Huguely.

The police call came at 2:15 am. They responded to Love’s apartment, which she shared with two female friends approximately three blocks from the UVA campus, expecting to find a possible alcohol overdose. However, due to “obvious physical trauma”, a murder investigation was launched and Huguely arrested approximately four hours later.

Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo said the two were involved in a past relationship and Huguely quickly became the focus of the investigation, though he did not say what led authorities to suspect him. No signs of weapons were reportedly found and no cause of death has been issued.

Love, of Cockeysville, Maryland, played four years of varsity lacrosse at Notre Dame Prepatory School in Baltimore and was all-county. She, along with Huguely, was scheduled to graduate from UVA later this month.

University President John Casteen issued a statement saying administrators are not only mourning Love, but that they “feel anger on reading that the investigators believe that another student caused it.”

“That she appears now to have been murdered by another student compounds this sense of loss by suggesting that Yeardley died without comfort or consolation from those closest to her,” Casteen said, calling Love “a student of uncommon talent and promise.”

Huguely, of Chevy Chase, Maryland, played lacrosse at Landon School in Bethesda. He was interviewed by the Washington Post back in 2006 during the Duke Lacrosse rape case since several of the players had attended Landon. The Duke case, where Crystal Gale Mangum accused the Duke Lacrosse players of rape, was eventually proven false. Mangum made news again when she was arrested for attempted murder in February.

“They’ve been scrutinized so hard and no one knows what has happened yet. In this country, you’re supposed to be innocent until proven guilty,” George Huguely told the Post in 2006. “I think that’s the way it should be.”

Tributes and messages have been posted online about their friend and fellow UVA lacrosse player Yeardley Love since the news of her death and the arrest of George Huguely, ABC reported.
