Robert Emmet Chambers Jr. nicknamed the Preppy Killer pled guilty to manslaughter of 18-year-old Jennifer Levin, whom he killed in New York City’s Central Park during the early morning hours of August 26, 1986. His nickname came from his schooling in which he attended a series of prep schools on scholarship, since his mother could not afford to pay private school tuition. Chambers was accepted by Boston University, where he completed one semester but was asked to leave because of difficulties, one involving a stolen credit card. He subsequently committed other petty thefts and burglaries in connection with his drug and alcohol abuse.
