CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The first victim was found in the gutter of a quiet residential street, just as the killer was shedding blood again on the campus of a nearby community college.
Wielding some kind of sharp-edged weapon, he killed a community college instructor before taking his own life in front of a classroom of students.
Police wouldn’t speculate on a motive for the murder-suicide and said little about how it all developed Friday at Casper College and in a neighborhood about two miles away. They hinted, however, that the three knew each another.
Casper Police Chief Chris Walsh said an “edged weapon” was used in at least one of the killings. He didn’t say more about what type of weapon it was and whether the killer used the same weapon in all of the deaths.
This is a climate related disaster. I had a roommate in college during the 1970s from Casper, and he told me that they had a very high suicide rate because of the constant infernal wind – which drove people nuts. It is clear that strict gun control and CO2 reductions could have prevented this knife tragedy.
