Patricia Ward, 66, was a much-loved teacher of language arts for 28 years at Farmingdale State College, a colleague told Mail-Online today.
Vice President for Institutional Advancement, Patrick Calabria, said: ‘Patricia Ward was a member of the campus for 28 years. She was well-known, well-liked, and well-respected. The campus is a very sad place today.’
She was found by residents, decapitated in front of her apartment building in Farmingdale, New York on Tuesday night.
Neighbours initially thought the body was part of a Halloween prank. The suspect, believed to be the victim’s son, kicked her head 20 feet and then jumped in front of an oncoming Long Island Rail Road train minutes later.

The 35-year-old suspect jumped in front of the train a mile away and died around 8.15pm, half an hour later.
He was identified as Derek Ward by the Daily News. The 35-year-old had a criminal history and psychiatric problems spanning a decade.
He was found to be carrying a pistol and 100 valiums when he died.
Ms Ward was believed to have suffered multiple stab wounds and broken ribs were among her injuries before she died.
She was an assistant professor of language arts at the Long Island Educational Opportunity Center on campus where she worked with high school students who need help to become prepared for college, Mr Calabria added.
Neighbours told the Post that they initially believed the headless corpse, dressed only in a bra and pants, was a Halloween joke – only to lift the body and find out it was real.
#AceWorldNews – NEW YORK – October 27 – State leaders in New York and New Jersey are at odds with scientists over Ebola as the states’ governors back 21-day quarantines for medical workers returning from West Africa, while the nation’s top infectious-disease expert warns that such restrictions are unnecessary and could discourage volunteers from aiding disease-ravaged countries.
The two governors late Sunday night emphasized separately that their policies permit home confinement for medical workers who have had contact with Ebola patients if the workers show no symptoms.
