WESTBURY, N.Y. (1010 WINS) -- There was shock in Westbury over the death of 22-year-old Haley Anderson, a nursing student found dead near the University of Binghamton last Friday.

Police said the victim's boyfriend is wanted for questioning, but may have fled the country.

Emma Dervin used to work with Anderson at the local Italian ice shop.

"You always wanted to be on a shift with Haley. Like she, like tips always came in because she was always so happy, like with everyone. She always talked to everyone, like every customer," she said.

John Duran was one of those customers.

"It was really tragic. I was shocked," he said.

As for reports that police consider a former boyfriend to be a person of interest, one co-worker said she could never imagine Haley provoking a fight.
