Police in Idaho said they are investigating a connection between the Nov. 13 fatal stabbing of four University of Idaho students and the 2021 stabbing death of a man and injuries to a woman that happened at a home between Salem and Silverton.

Travis and Jamilyn Juetten were stabbed multiple times when an assailant broke into their home near the intersection of Howell Prairie Road and Hazelgreen Road in East Salem about 3 a.m. on Aug. 13, 2021.

Travis was pronounced dead at the scene and Jamilyn was stabbed multiple times, but survived.

That case is still unsolved.

Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Ethan Chapin and Xana Kernodle were stabbed to death in an apartment they rented on King Road near the University of Idaho campus about 3 a.m. on Nov. 13, according to a press release from the Moscow Police Department.

Police said they don't have a suspect in the case.

At a press conference on Wednesday, Moscow Police Chief James Fry said he had been made aware of the unsolved Salem case.

"I think we're looking at every avenue and we have other agencies reaching out to us with their cases and stuff that we are going to follow up on," he said. "We will continue to follow up on those.

Boise State University students, along with people who knew the four University of Idaho students who were found killed in Moscow, Idaho, days earlier, pay their respects at a vigil held in front of a statue on the Boise State campus.

"I actually had a tip come in on that case and I forwarded it to our tip line."

Travis Juetten's family has offered a $50,000 reward for information leading to a conviction in that case.

People with information about that case are asked to contact Marion County Sheriff's Office Detective Jessica Van Horn at JVanHorn@co.marion.or.us or 503-584-6211 or text TIPMCSO to 847411.
