“People thought he might have been attacked,” a police spokesperson told Syracuse.com. “They noted him fall off the screen and then they heard heavy breathing.”

Several members of the chat called 911.

Scully-Powers fled and but was apprehended just before 1pm. He was arrested and is now facing 2nd degree murder charges.

Scully-Powers was taken to a local hospital for minor injuries she suffered when he jumped out of a window.
