A neighbor’s Mini Australian Sheppard was found filleted and skinned nearby the murder site of four University of Idaho students. This revelation has some believing that the two crimes are connected.
“It was like a deer that someone had hunted,” Pam explained. “They cut him around the neck and just skinned him. His little legs had fur and his little face had fur, but the rest of him was just skinned.”
The pair are rightfully shaken up. They have lived in their house for 39 years and they will now start locking their doors for the first time. The Colbert’s say they believe that someone snatched their dog off of their 10-acre property.
“We let Buddy out and somebody must have been waiting out there,” she said. “Bud never leaves the yard, but this person grabbed Buddy.”
The crime took place three miles away from where the unsolved murder of four college students occurred. All four of the victims were slain in their beds while they slept.
In new press release from Monday evening, Moscow, Idaho Police announced that they do not believe the two crimes are connected.
Those who torture animals often “graduate” to doing homo sapiens....
More commentary here:
Shepherd, not sheppard. 😒
“Idaho Police announced that they do not believe the two crimes are connected.”
Unless they know that for a fact the police had better act as if they are connected. Belief is insufficient in the context of a quadruple homicide.
And saying stuff like that to prevent “panic” is pointless and unproductive.
Police didn’t believe the Sharon Tate murders had anything with the LaBianca murders either despite glaring similarities.
Sometimes cops are “target fixated” with early theories and exclude new evidence that goes against their preconceived ideas.
Cops believe the Tate murders were drug related and it took Susan Atkins blabbing to a cellmate to redirect them to a new direction.
Not positive this has the same effects but it could be.
In Nashville’s famous Marcia Trimble murder case the “experts” told the police that in this type of case the culprit is usually a neighborhood boy. The police overlooked the connection to a series of crimes close to Vanderbilt’s campus and kept harassing innocent neighborhood boys. DNA finally solved the case and the thug perp also raped and murdered my former classmate Sally DePrez, a sophomore at Vanderbilt. Jerome Barrett was convicted but is still breathing air in the prison system.
And that isn’t going to give a good cozy feeling to the jurors someday.
They certainly should. The same police said initially, after the murders, that there was no threat to the public, but have since walked back from that. This is another one of their ideas.
If they have not arrested anyone for either crime, then how can they be sure that they are not connected? Makes me annoyed. And animal cruelty should be fully investigated.
Editors, where have they all gone?
The police investigating the Idaho murders have been less than impressive so far.
I read the police have ruled this out as having any connection to the murders. They said it was wildlife activity.
Obviously it is the same person. They need to catch this mentality ill person quickly before more people are murdered.
I completely overlooked the Trimble case, which is surprising cuz it happened locally, well in Nashville and was on the news every night.
I was twelve at the time and remembered being shocked cuz kids aren’t supposed to die.
One of early life lessons.
Marcia lived between our house on Woodmont Blvd (where Bowling Ave intersects) and my sister’s school, Harpeth Hall. I was a student at Western Kentucky but was home on the Easter when her body was discovered. Jeffrey Womack was also a victim of the crime because he was the main suspect for decades. He worked at the Jolly Ox steak house in Green Hills when my pal was running the kitchen.
I was a classmate of Sally DePrez at Woodmont School. Her father was a Vanderbilt physician as was mine. I can remember her calling the popular teacher Mrs. Dixon “a stink pot”. She was feisty and she had more DNA of Jerome Barrett under her fingernails than her own. She fought hard for her life.
How can they call a skinned dog wildlife activity? They don’t look remotely the same.
Hand the perp over to me.
I won’t use a knife to skin him alive, I’ll use the old military issue 2 part chemical decontamination wipes that remove layers of skin.
I wondered. Doesn’t sound right to me. I am starting to think they are downplaying these murders by saying they were targeted. That would be because it is college enrollment time, and this could really impact the cities economy that relies heavily on the universities enrollment.
That wouldn’t surprise me at all. The chief of police answers to the mayor and city council and they answer to main street.
Pretty sure a comfy sinecure in a low crime college town attracts the political today type. I also doubt any officer bothered to go look at the dog carcass or the rabbit. Mini Aussies are smart and fast so doubt it would be surprised by a coyote and if it was, there’d be some noise and a bobcat or cougar would have cleaned out all the pets in the area. But an Aussie would approach a creeper hiding in the bushes and got shivved for his friendly nosiness.
And it could still be a targeted killing if one of the victims has more vicious stabbings than the others. I can envision a creeper going from room to room quietly killing until he finds his desired target and unleashes on her.
At this point, unless they find a DNA match with a potential suspect, this case is going cold.
This group of kids were very popular, their home has been described as a party house. I think the killer is a sociopathic loner who has in some way been rebuffed by these kids and he snapped. Also, it is interesting that this attack happened right before they would be going home for Thanksgiving, which means he wanted to do it before they left town. I hope the police check out who stays on campus during TG.
