I know that Fridays are supposed to be my frugal Friday Wrap Up post, but this week had been a very rough one for our local area. Over last weekend, 4 college students were brutally murdered in their home, while 2 other students living there somehow came out alive with no injuries. Those 2 other students are fully cooperating with the police, and I am sure they are in shock. If you have not heard about this horrible crime, as it has made the national news, here are two links to news articles on it...https://www.krem.com/article/news/crime/university-of-idaho-students-killed/autopsies-completed-university-of-idaho-students/293-cc8de95c-e92d-411c-abe9-bee2ac30b3c4
Our hearts break for the students killed, their friends and family and the University of Idaho campus, where they all attended school together. One of my friend's sons were friends with the girls that lost their lives. I have no idea how they are going to begin to process this since they grew up with these girls and were then in college with them. 😭
Moscow, Idaho is a tight knit community where people for the most part feel safe. At first the police said they did not feel that there was a threat to the community after these gruesome murders, but later walked that back. We now know that there is a murder(s) out there on the loose and no one is feeling safe.
I, along with Rachel, graduated from the University of Idaho. We have friends that work there. Jaysn, Rachel and Steven live right outside of that town. Steven goes to school in Moscow and both Jeff and Rachel work in Moscow. Jeff was born and raised there. Chris, being a Latah County Sheriff's corporal, works out of that town also and knows most of the guys doing the investigation since he also used to work for the Moscow Police Department and went to POST or taught at POST with some of the Idaho State Police officers who are also up here helping.
Moscow, Idaho is where I do most of my shopping and where the rest of our family up here does also. Rachel, Steven and Jaysn go to church in Moscow. Our family is strongly tied to this beautiful community where such a horrific crime took place. We pray they find the murder(s) soon and that they never see the light of day again.
