EDIT: Looks like it’s for real (suspect arrested in Pennsylvania for killings of 4 University of Idaho students; has ties to Monroe County and albrightsville)

There is a rumor floating around SM that an arrest has been made in PA, in connection to the Idaho student murders. Again, just a rumor, but wondering if anyone in this sub knows of a way to check through publicly available means? Arrest records and such?

If you have a name, you can try the UJS portal. It’s all public record.

The portal shows that the suspect was arrested by PSP and has an extradition hearing January 3. He is being held in jail, pending extradition.

You're in the town square with a megaphone "everyone, keep this quiet just in case I'm wrong, but here's the deal!"

EXACTLY! And I posted a joke and people freaked the fuck out. People are nuts these days with no sense of humor.

The old “feigning responsibility for murdering strangers” gag! Classic.

"I hate posting rumors" says the guy posting rumors.


brk1 OP t1_j298p7r wrote

The reason I’m asking is that someone here could share resources to credible information that could confirm or dispel the story.

Some people do.


brk1 OP t1_j29e5f3 wrote

See above: this has already been confirmed. Your comments are irrelevant at this point.

Huh? What a weird comment. I never claimed I had anything to do with this.


Supernatural0311 t1_j29r38r wrote

The OP was literally looking for more someone with local credible information. Not to mention they ended up being correct.

Hey, at least you got to be a jerk on the internet today. That must be exhilarating for you.

They are stating an arrest has been made, details are limited at moment.


brk1 OP t1_j29ke0k wrote

AP is reporting the suspects name and confirming the arrest is for Idaho murders.


Gothsicle t1_j296l7k wrote

I'm very interested in this case, are willing to give any more info on this rumor?


brk1 OP t1_j2996cw wrote

I don’t have any more info other than it is a rumor on social media. I have no inside knowledge and am not putting this forward as fact. a Lehigh valley media site posted this on twitter but then deleted it.


Gothsicle t1_j29deq0 wrote

looks like someone was arrested in Monroe County in connection with these murders.

Edit: Scranton

Thank you for posting.

Sadly, it won’t undo this heinous crime but I’m thankful the police have located and apprehended a suspect.

Just saw this on my local news as I’m from the area the arrest was made. Few details but heard there’s going to be a press conference at 1pm.


OozeAndOz t1_j29mchz wrote

Just saw an article saying there was an arrest in Monroe county that is related to the case but that's all I could find out.


artificialavocado t1_j29fn5e wrote

Looks like it wasn’t just a rumor. Doesn’t mean they are from here though just apprehended here. I-80 runs through Monroe very well could have been pulled over while traveling.


brk1 OP t1_j2a291e wrote

Reports seem to indicate he is from albrightsville.


QueenMabs_Makeup0126 t1_j2ak05v wrote

It’s true. The arrest happened a few doors away from where a friend of mine lives.

Aint no rumor man they made an arrest earlier today


Allemaengel t1_j29ehnb wrote

I live in Monroe County. Haven't heard anything like that yet.


brk1 OP t1_j29k29c wrote

Check AP, it’s the top story.


Allemaengel t1_j29o4jp wrote

Yeah, arrested in Albrightsville. Less than 10 miles from me.


Odd_Shirt_3556 t1_j299qnj wrote

The cops and FBI in Idaho are under tremendous pressure to solve this. If an arrest was made, it would be everywhere.
