Cops probing bloody ‘Scream’ killings make chilling discovery near crime scene

Internet sleuths are insisting that a pet dog found brutally skinned with patches of fur only remaining on its legs and face is connected to the grisly murders of four University of Idaho students.

The horror find was just miles from the crime scene where blood was left oozing through the walls with the victims “too shocked to scream”.

“It was like a deer that someone had hunted,” the mini Australian shepherd’s owner told the Daily Mail.

“They had filleted him like they were about to eat him. It was terrible, unbelievable.”

Disgusted cops, who said the bloodied corpses found at the house was “the worst crime scene” they had ever seen, investigated the link between the skinned dog and the heinous killings.

Their investigation claimed it was not connected, with a city of Moscow Police Department statement saying: “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.”

But online detectives still reckon the gruesome discovery was linked to the senseless murders of 20-year-old Ethan Chapin, 21-year-old Madison Mogen, 20-year-old Xana Kernodle and 21-year-old Kaylee Goncalves on November 13.

One wrote on Twitter: “They said tonight that the skinned dog situation is unrelated. I don’t know how they know that…

“But we all know that cruelty towards animals is the preface to many serial killers.”

Another pointed out: “I just heard that an elderly couples’ dog was found skinned alive on October 22, within 3-4 miles from where this happened.

“Supposedly the police have dismissed it as potentially being related. I’m sorry, but you don’t simply ignore that type of psychotic behaviour!”

Whilst a third argued: “I can’t believe they can dismiss the skinned dog incident so quickly. To me it sounds too coincidental, this person is obviously sick and twisted.”

Cops said they are processing almost 500 tips that could help their investigation and 38 interviews have been carried out with people who may have useful information.

But they have not made any arrests in connection with the murtders.
