On Friday, sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they weren't authorised to discuss the case said a 13-year-old had been arrested in connection with her murder.
A 13-year-old boy confessed to the brutal murder of an 18-year-old college student in a Manhattan park, police say.
"The idea that a college freshman at Barnard was murdered in cold blood is absolutely not only painful to me as a parent, it's terrifying to think that that could happen anywhere,"New York Bill de Blasio said Thursday at a news conference".
The park where Majors was stabbed, near the campuses of Barnard College and Columbia University, is in a precinct in Harlem that has grown safer over the years, with major crimes declining dramatically there over the last 20 years, according to police data.
Majors was able to stagger up stairs leading out of Morningside Park, and a campus security officer called 911, but she was pronounced dead at the hospital that night.
Investigators recovered a knife Thursday but were not certain whether it was connected to Majors' death.

"To me the greatest tragedy here is that the world won't get to see what she would have done - it may have been in music, it may have been in writing, and it may have been in something else", Graham said.

She described her granddaughter as a talented musician who had written and performed an original song for her grandparent's 68-year anniversary earlier this summer. She was also stabbed underneath her arm, where her heart was pierced.
Falsini said you could tell the 18-year-old was "going to go places". "She had a personality no one could ever copy, she was really just special".
"She was one of the sweetest people I know".
"She had a younger brother, two years younger", Burton said.
"Anyone who was lucky enough to meet her would agree that she was a good, kind person", Phelan said. The school's campus stretches from west 116th Street to west 120th Street off Broadway in the Morningside Heights neighborhood of New York City. "We've lost a young woman full of potential in a senseless act of violence".
