Reporters ask police: Could Idaho University stabbings be connected to previous knife crime in another city?

There is some added speculation and intrigue concerning the university of Ohio stabbings. The murder captivated and shocked a campus city and state alike.

There are some new indications that privately investigators have been open to the possibility that there could be connections to previous crimes in different locations..

Reporters at a news briefing Wednesday asked Moscow police about the possible connection between the students’ slayings and a second unsolved stabbing, which left Travis Juetten dead and seriously injured his wife Jamilyn in Oregon.

Authorities say an intruder attacked the couple in their sleep around 3 a.m. on Aug. 13, 2021.

Travis Juetten, 26, fought back but succumbed to his injuries. His wife, who is 26 now, survived 19 stab wounds.

“We’re looking at every avenue, and we have other agencies reaching out to us with other cases, stuff that we are going to follow up on,” Moscow Police Chief James Fry said Wednesday. He said his office knew about the case and was looking into it, but no official connection has been drawn between the two cases.

The following morning, the Idaho Tribune reported that a third nearby attack shared similar characteristics.
