    The attack is described as "random", "brutal" and "predatory in nature" by police and the reporters.

    Such a tragic story. I really hope they catch the perp soon. :(

    I hope they find the guy. Those poor women. It never ceases to amaze me how little some people value life. So tragic!

    And here is a local update:
    http://www.king5.com/localnews/stories/NW_072209WAB-south-park-stabbing-community-KC.6857ff5e.html

    I was surprised to see such little coverage locally, but maybe I wasn't looking in the correct places. I hope that they catch this guy soon, you would think that he would be acting suspiciously around those that know him well, I mean he just stabbed a woman to death and knows that the other survived, and could possibly identify him, you'd think he would be shaken up, even if a sociopath, that he did not eliminate all witnesses.
    Good thoughts go out to the victims' families and loved ones, and prayers for the injured woman's speedy recovery and support in the loss of her partner...how doubly horrific:(

    Thank god this guy was caught. Sounds like he's a one person crime wave also suspected of a fatal arson fire and was set to appear on DV charges in August. I think the DV charges are for his mother. She sounds like a big time enabler that just can't grasp how evil her son is.

    SEATTLE -- Police have arrested the suspect in the gruesome deadly stabbing in the city's South Park neighborhood, and detectives said the man is also suspected in a fatal fire that left two dead, including former NFL quarterback J.J. Jones earlier this month.

    Isaiah M.K. Kalebu was arrested at Magnuson Park on Friday evening after a Metro bus driver recognized him and called 911. Officers located the man and his dog at the park and arrested him without incident, Sgt. Sean Whitcomb said.
    Kalebu is suspected of stabbing Teresa Butz to death and wounding her partner at their home on Sunday. Detectives said Kalebu is the person of interest previously identified in surveillance footage released by police. Investigators said they'd questioned 23-year-old Kalebu about the fatal University Place house fire that killed former NFL quarterback John "J.J." Jones and a woman named Rachel Kalebu. Jones had been renting the basement of the home in the 5500 block of 64th Avenue West. (more at link)

    Somebody should make him swallow something more interesting than a pencil.

    This story is so sad, and disturbing. I don't blame the juror who bailed, I'm still trying to avoid the details myself.

    Some of the original news articles mentioned that one of Teresa's brothers, Norbert Leo Butz, was actually in Seattle at the time of the murder, starring in the out of town tryout of "Catch Me If You Can" (as the Tom Hanks character from the movie.)

    Norbert just won the Tony Award this past Sunday night for best leading actor in a musical for his "Catch Me" performance, and mentioned Teresa at the end of his speech. A sad note to what should have been nothing but a career triumph for a highly talented performer, but hopefully the family will find some justice from the trial.

    Sources: Kalebu hospitalized after suicide attempt

    He needs another eval (in one of the more recent articles the Judge was talking about doing this) IMHO. Once he's stable then proceed to trial and convict him. JMHO
