Idaho police: Dog found skinned head-to-tail is unrelated to college students’ murders


MOSCOW, Idaho – The Moscow Police Department said Monday that a dog found skinned head-to-tail on Oct. 21 is unrelated to the brutal murders of four college students three weeks later. 

Pamela Colbert’s neighbors found her lost dog, a 12-year-old mini Australian shepherd, completely skinned just down the road from her home, which is several miles from the scene of the college students’ murders.

Some locals feared that the grotesque incidents could be related, but law enforcement dispelled those rumors on Monday. 

“Detectives are aware of a Latah County Sheriff’s Office incident of the report of a skinned dog and have determined it is unrelated to this incident,” the Moscow Police Department said in a short update on Monday evening.
