As Louis Coleman of Providence awaits extradition from Delaware back to New England to face charges in the death of Jassy Correia of Boston we’re getting a window into Coleman’s personality from one of his former college roommates in California.

 Coleman went to Cal State Long Beach and roomed with 3 other women while a graduate student there in late 2016 into 2017.

Doe Akinsola was one of those roommates, she said Coleman was creepy and would aggressively hit on her.

After telling Coleman to stay out of her room Akinsola says he became less friendly and more reclusive.

Akinsola says she’s honestly not all that surprised that the DA’s office is now looking at Coleman for a string of other crimes.
