    I'm trying to understand the exact nature of the connection since it is a bit confusing. I take it that the first set of murders occurred at the home of Drs. William and Claire Hunter. Their son, Thomas Hunter, 11, and their housekeeper, 57-year-old Shirlee Sherman, were stabbed to death at the Hunters' home on March 13, 2008.

    The two who were murdered just recently were Roger and Mary Brumback. Roger worked with both Drs. Hunter at Creighton's medical school. That makes four people well known by the Hunters who have been murdered in two double murders, each murder occurring inside the deceased's own home.

    The housekeeper and the Hunter's son were stabbed to death...the Brumbacks apparently manner of death has not been revealed. Police have said there are similarities but have not commented further.

    I wonder where the Hunters were when the Brumbacks were killed? I need to look up the 2008 media coverage of the first two murders.

    Both sets of murders have a connection to the Creighton Pathology Department where Thomas' father was a colleague of Dr. Brumback. Dr. Bill Hunter tells Channel 6 News police have been in contact with him, but he could not say anything more.

    Creighton University confirmed for Channel 6 News Friday that it is taking extra precautions around campus while police try to determine if there is a connection. Channel 6 has also learned some individual staff members at Creighton are getting extra security both on and off campus.

    The article says OPD will give an update tomorrow but gives no time. A sleuth on the Omaha Double MUrder thread said it would be at 10 am but gave no link so I dunno. I glad to to read that some CU staff members are receiving extra security.

    Looks like there is a link to follow to view it. I am probably not commenting here again until then, at least we can engage in intelligent speculation after the presser.

    This is horrible! I have a daughter who is an alumni of Creighton and still lives in Omaha. Omaha is a relatively "small town" for these types of murders. Very frightening!

    It is very frightening, NoRest! Especially for those staff members at CU in the pathology dept. I can't imagine how I would feel.

    Omaha's police chief will talk Monday with some Creighton University faculty members about their security concerns after the unsolved murders last week of a pathology professor and his wife.

    Chief Todd Schmaderer also will make his first public comments about the homicides at 1 p.m. Monday. Follow Omaha.com for the latest as details become available.

    Dr. Poonam Sharma, chairwoman of pathology, said Saturday she invited Schmaderer to address concerned members of the Creighton community, and he agreed to do so.

    I had difficulty linking to the video but then checked live TV and it was being broadcast. I think there were a lot of people trying to downstream. The authorities are keeping a tight reign on any details, which is perhaps best. It does sound as if they are concluding a link between the crimes. I was interested in the chief's comment when asked about the task force that 'If I were the killer, I wouldn't want these people coming after me'.

    One clue as to the nature of the murder scene: last night channel 3 10 PM news as the lead story showed the arrival of a van at the Brumbach home- from a company that does crime scene cleanups. Of course none of them would comment on what they found. I'd bet it was horrific.

    I think we may be in for a period of time in which we hear nothing from LE.

    Thanks much for the update, Snick. I couldn't watch the presser either at the link I provided above...it just kept playing the same 20 sec clip over and over. If you find a link to the whole presser please post.

    I'd be shaking in my boots if I were the killer. The FBI and NE state police are on it now. I doubt we will be hearing alot either because I bet they are combing physical evidence, computers, etc. found at the scene. I guess the scene has been cleared if the crime scene cleanup company was at the residence last evening?

    I feel so sad that the Drs. Hunter are reliving this all over again. I am having flashbacks of what little was shown on AMW ot the crime scene at the Hunter home. I cannot imagine how they must feel. I hope they have a good support system surrounding them and wish the same for the Brumback family.

    I didn't have a problem with the video posted but here is a link to the police dept. FB page that has it also:

    Some quotes from waltzingmatilda's link on the press conference:

    http://www.omaha.com/article/2013052...nd-dundee-case

    Police Chief Todd Schmaderer announced Monday he has formed a task force to look into possible ties between the deaths of Dr. Roger Brumback and Mary Brumback, both 65, and the March 13, 2008, fatal stabbings of Thomas Hunter and Shirlee Sherman, 57, inside the Hunter family's Dundee home. The task force's sole assignment is to solve the four homicides.

    I saw a bit on CNN where they interviewed a couple of medical students at the graduation ceremony. One said the Pathology Dept was relatively small - only 12 staff. I assume they meant 12 professors on staff and weren't counting any administrative or lab staff.

    Kip, that is correct. I work for another hospital in Omaha and we also have 12 pathologists on staff. We have over 100 other staff in the pathology department. Many of my co-workers have known Dr. Brumback throughout the years, and they all say nothing but good things about him. It is so sad to lose someone who contributed so much to Alzheimer's and brain research.
