According to detectives, there is no connection between a 12-year-old dog that was discovered skinned and the stabbing deaths of four college students in Moscow, Idaho.
The gruesome killings of four University of Idaho students three weeks later have no connection to the dog discovered on October 21 with its head to tail skinned off, according to the Moscow Police Department.
Several miles from the location of the murders that took place off-campus, Pamela Colbert’s neighbors discovered her lost dog, a 12-year-old Australian shepherd, entirely skinned just down the road from her house.
Colbert, 78, recalled a supervisor at the Latah County Sheriff’s Office telling her: “Animals haven’t carried out this. A person did this.” Locals speculated that the horrifying instances might be connected, but law authorities shot that theory down on Monday.
The Moscow Police Department provided a brief update on the issue on Monday evening, saying, “Detectives are aware of a Latah County Sheriff’s Office incident of the report of a skinned dog and have concluded it is unconnected to this event.”

The day Colbert’s dog was discovered dead next to both of their houses in an area close to a shed with overgrown grass, her neighbor, Clint Hughes’ fluffy Bernese Mountain Dog named Max, tore up his bed next door.
He continued, “It was done with a knife. You could easily tell it wasn’t an animal that did it.” 2015 saw the final homicide in Moscow. Since authorities have no suspects or recovered weapons more than a week after the tragedy, the entire town is on edge.
The killings of Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Ethan Chapin, 20, and Xana Kernodle, 20, on November 13, just a few blocks from the University of Idaho campus, are being looked into by the FBI, Idaho State Police, and Moscow Police Department.
According to investigators, the four students came home around 1:45 a.m. and were killed between 3 and 4:00 a.m. Just before noon, someone contacted 911 from one of the two phones of the two still-alive roommates to report an unconscious person. When the victims were found, police informed University of Idaho students.
On Friday, dried blood was still on the floor of a classroom in northern Thailand, a day after the worst mass murder in Thailand’s history happened in what may have been the most unlikely place. More than 30 people were shot and killed at a Thai daycare centre.
On Monday, investigators added a parking lot and a wooded area behind the house to the crime scene.

A supervisor with the Latah County Sheriff’s Office reportedly told Colbert, 78, “An animal didn’t do this.” Colbert shared this memory with Fox News Digital. An individual male carried out these actions. Law enforcement officials ended villagers’ fears that the horrific incidents were linked on Monday.
Moscow, Idaho, police claim there is no connection between the slaying of four college students and the discovery of a 12-year-old mini Australian Shepherd with its entire body peeled. The Moscow Police Department sent a brief update late Monday night, saying, “Detectives are aware of an incident at the Latah County Sheriff’s Office in which a skinned dog was reported and have concluded it was unconnected to this event.”
Max, her neighbor Clint’s fluffy Bernese Mountain Dog, tore up his bedding the same day Colbert’s dog was discovered dead behind a shed in the weeds. Clint Hughes, a neighbor of Pam Colbert’s, had a fluffy Bernese Mountain Dog named Max, and on the same day that Colbert’s dog was found dead near a shed with overgrown grass, Max tore up Hughes’ mattress.
