They’ve roped off a portion of a Jefferson Ave on Saturday morning; hearing it’s a poss or double homicide

A friend of mine works down the street from there, she said the same. Allegedly a double stabbing. Obviously not confirmed yet, just relaying what I was told.

That is horrible.   Thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of the victims. 


Sounds like the victims were targeted by the suspect and this was not some random act of violence.

apparently an au pair and male employer.

The information released so far by the Police indicate they do not believe it was a murder/suicide and that there were no fire arms involved.

If it’s not a murder-suicide is there a third party involved? I was driving to the village this morning and saw Jefferson was blocked. Later I saw the yellow tape around the house. That house had been vacant a long time, was finally painted,etc and the current residents have lived there maybe a year.

I've heard it was an au-pair and the father of the family she was working for.  Possible wife and children were not at home.  Some rumors it was a Tinder date gone wrong.  If she was an au pair, not sure from where, but there's probably a devastated family overseas.  Suspect still at large.

One more tragedy to add to the mass shooting that just took place in El Paso.

 One of the photos in this report shows the street sign at Jefferson and MAPLEWOOD Ave.  We're talking another block down from there, right?
It also says an unconscious man and woman were found INSIDE the residence.

QED:  Rumors will fly.  There will be many different reports for a while, I guess.

Prosecutor’s Office said 400 block of Walton, so somewhere on Walton between Jefferson and the merge with Maplewood Avenue.

there was a related high speed chase through Westfield today with what seemed like 20 cop cars screaming by at 80+mph. Scary stuff

 Related to this homicide in Maplewood?

that’s what people are saying here.

Walton by Jefferson is completely closed off. Essex Prosecutor vehicle parked near the house. I wonder if they're looking for more evidence.

What a horrible event.

I would say yes absolutely that, in addition to talking to neighbors and trolling for security camera footage.


Added benefit: keeps the looky loos away.


Wonder if anyone called the cops on this dude for lurking around, apparently quite a lot.

A horrible tragedy. We live very close, walk and drive by on Jefferson by home’s side lawn all the time. On Sat a.m. one of our bedroom windows was opened a bit, I was in bed stirring and heard screaming but being half asleep chalked it off to cats, other animals, or kids up very early making noise and fell back asleep. Our hearts go out to the victims’ family members. So incredibly sad.

Isn’t stalking illegal? Hard to know tho.

 Well we don't know much other than what neighbors said to news reporters. The quote says he was "acting suspicious" but what does that even mean?

 Where did you read he was lurking around a lot? I'm not challenging your veracity, but I don't remember reading that. The quote I remember (from the ABC news site) was that he was "hanging around the street Friday." 

I think there have been some conflicts in the reporting. One report suggested the woman was found because someone called 911 while she was being attacked. Another that she was found by a jogger.

I looked through some of the links again. It does seem like there's some confusion about how the woman was discovered. As near as I can tell the jogger saw her but neighbors had already called 911. And one report said the neighbors had put a sheet over her.

 Wha???? What did they do that for? I understand it was upsetting but you can't be doing that...


mrincredible

That's in the one report.

But not mentioned in others.
