‘We Do Not Have a Suspect,’ the Police Say After Idaho Killings
The latest murder of a woman on the border near Idaho claimed the lives of a mother and her children — one of whom was 8 years old.
There was a note on the dead baby: ‘We don’t have a suspect,’ the police report says.
The police say it’s a message left by her parents, who have not yet publicly come forward, and they don’t have an immediate suspect.
After an 8-year-old girl was killed by her mother and 8 other children while a father was charged with murder in the Idaho killings, police say there are no suspects.
While the police have said they have no leads, it appears a couple killed the 8-year-old, who was killed “with extreme violence,” and left a note asking not to be named.
It was a devastating and heartbreaking news for the family of the 8-year-old girl.
“They lost their 8-year-old daughter,” her grandmother, Angela Kippan, told NBC News on Saturday. Kippan said she thinks it was a random act, and that she is “very angry with the person who committed this heinous act” and that the shooter’s mother has been charged with first-degree murder.
Kippan said she plans to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
“I’m so angry,” Kippan said. “I’m angry that somebody walked in to one of my grandchildren and killed them. I think it should have never happened.”
The father, Paul Risling, did not speak during the press conference, but his attorney asked to be kept out of the discussion.
Kippan didn’t know Risling and her family. She said she thinks the family left a note with the baby that said, “We don’t have a suspect.”
She said Risling was with his wife in their home when the shooting happened.
“They were in contact with their son as they were being held; he was on the phone and he told them, ‘Mom and I are going to get out of here,’” Kippan said.
