Orlando Tercero, 22, is accused of murdering Haley Anderson, also 22, then arranging her body at an off-campus house near Binghamton University, New York, on Friday.
Her roommates found her lying in his bed after climbing in through a side window and they called police.
They say he was angry because she had earlier dumped him for her a different young man.
Haley's friends said that while she and Tercero had 'hooked up' in the past, she only ever viewed him as a friend.
'He never got over his obsession with her,' Misha Topalli, Anderson's roommate and friend, told TIME.
'They hooked up in the past, but to her, it was pretty platonic and she didn't want to have anything seriously,' she added.
By the time police named him a suspect, Tercero was on board a flight back to Nicaragua where he has family.
He has since deleted his Facebook profile and Nicaraguan officials say they do not know if they will extradite him to face charges.
Anderson was found by her worried friends lying in his bed and said they knew she was dead by the color of her skin.
They had tracked her cell phone using the Find My iPhone app to the other student home.
Police have not yet revealed how the young woman died or what condition she was found in but her friends said she appeared she had been dead for a while when they found her and that she had a handprint bruise on her arm.
