Seattle Times ^ | September 14, 2013 | Dominic Gates

A Shoreline Community College professor died Saturday from an apparently unprovoked and random stabbing that also severely injured his 30-year-old partner after the pair left a Seattle Sounders game Friday night.

A 46-year-old college English professor died Saturday from an apparently unprovoked and random stabbing that also severely injured his 30-year-old partner after the pair left a Sounders game Friday night.

Troy Wolff, chair of the English department at Shoreline Community College and a resident of the Beacon Hill neighborhood, died from multiple stab wounds.

His partner, Kristin Ito, who was also stabbed repeatedly, was in serious condition at Harborview Medical Center late Saturday afternoon.

The alleged attacker, a 44-year-old man, was arrested Friday and taken to King County Jail. On Saturday, he was booked for investigation of murder...

The fact that they do not identify the suspect or show him tells me all I need to know. Or am I wrong?

I think this murderer was a white guy. The thing that I find sad is that he had time to hack at his victims with a small knife without an armed law-abiding citizen around to intervene.

He was booked Saturday and is in jail, but there seems to be a blackout on the murderer’s identity.

Oh, you'll know just by the way the media runs with the story...or burys is altogether.

Randomly killing people in Seattle.

Re: “Perp’s Color”

Locally, there have been no full face photos published that I've seen.

At the scene, side photos show he has dark skin, and rear shot photos show short, very curly, dark hair.

He's under Psych Evaluation, so they might have special rules on publishing pictures.

Still, hard not to notice that the perp chose a middle aged white guy and his half Asian girlfriend for murder.

There are plenty of Black people in that area he chose NOT to attack.

And why would the media sanitize that from their reports?

Was it possible that they perp was saying, “This is for Trayvon!”?

I found that also, those professional photographers couldn’t get a photo of his face for some reason, but it does look like a black on white attack.

He is arrested, booked, in jail, the brother has already forgiven him, we already know that the motive was just random and nothing else, we know how old the killer is, but not his name or what he looks like, or even his race for sure.

I guess we don’t really need much else, they can either just sentence him now or release him, the story seems to be over and it is time to move along as far as the journalists are concerned, they have told us enough.

This is one of those stories that seems kind of vague and dreamy, like we live in an Opium cloud, something happened, but let’s move away from this unpleasantness.

I'm glad it was cleared up that the perp didn't attack a gay couple. I read "partner" and it being Seattle assumed gay.

But since there hasn't been a national stink made, I guess it's just "random violence", not a hate crime.

In contrast to all the "love crimes" out there.

For those not familiar with Seattle, Pioneer Square is homeless central.

Mildly dangerous during the day, but very dangerous at night.

Two days gone by and no name of the perp, who was caught at the scene, waiting for police. I think releasing HIS name is in order.

He was arrested and booked Saturday for murder. Unfortunately, King County only has booking photos/details for the last 24 hours of booking. Too late to find out the “diminished capacity” murderer until his court hearing I guess.

Boop,

It happened a short time after a Sounders game ended.

So, I assume a lot of fairly normal people might have been wandering through, or stopping for a post game beer.

Both the victims were at the game.

From the film footage, the perp is clearly black.

And it’s only random if one accepts that he was looking for ANYONE to stab. He wasn’t. He wanted a White, and he got a White.

They have “gun control” in Seattle, but not “criminal control”.

That’s the way libs think and act, and innocent people die.

What is wrong with this picture, besides the fact that the mayor of Seattle is a total asshole?

The rule is that all black on white hate crimes must be marketed as “random attacks.”

I think that term can now be classified as a new “dog whistle” for us.

Another of Obama’s and Holder's sons exacting vengeance on the evil white oppressors of the black man. These white “crackers” deserved every stab wound for what they've done to the black race.

Must be a PC thing of not naming the suspect.
Here is this story from Seattle PD about an armed citizen stopping an assailant.

I’m living in Seattle’s Belltown, not far from the incident, and following this story closely, as are many folks in this district, and I’m wondering why the Lamestream Media blackout of the name and race of the perp?

Also, rumor control has it that the perp yelled, “This is for Trayvon!” as he attacked the couple.

Thanks in advance for any information on the perp!

I’ve been closely reading the comments section at The Seattle Times for the last couple of days in which the majority of posts are ripping to pieces the Leftist mayor of Seattle and the so called “Community Mental Health” control that is so beloved by the Progressives who rule this city and state.

Another subject of many posts is the hate crime angle.

Does The Seattle Times have information that proves the perp yelled, “This is for Trayvon?”

I can only assume the facts, race and name of the individual responsible for this crime is being hidden from the public because the Leftist political machine that controls Seattle fears that the truth will cut against their favorite Seattle mayor, Mike McGinn.

If any Freeper out there can supply me with detailed information on this terrible hate crime, I promise to inform the locals who read my Seattle blog.

Whenever the MSM uses ‘random’ in its description it almost certainly means the attacker was black.

Jack,

The Seattle political news is even worse than you think.

Mayor McGinn is trailing his Democrat opponent by 22%.

Ed Murray, the likely next mayor, is openly gay.

Ed Murray wrote this on his campaign website about McGinn and the Seattle PD:

“The Seattle Police Department (SPD) is currently subject to a consent decree from the US Department of Justice (DOJ), due to the use of excessive force and concerns about racially biased policing. These circumstances, as well as the current mayor’s resistance to accepting and immediately acting upon the DOJ’s findings, reflect failures of leadership at the top.”

The incoming mayor wants LESS vigorous law enforcement than the guy about to be voted out!

And I'm going to guess that the stadium has a "no guns" policy and people going into the game have to pass thru metal detectors, so even though it's a "shall issue" state, the perp could be sure the victims were unarmed.

FINALLY after three days, the Leftist Seattle Times announces the name of the suspect that they knew from the gitgo, although they haven’t published his race, or him yelling, “This is for Trayvon Martin!” when he attacked the couple with a knife.

I agree - with the next likely mayor in bed with the Obama Regime, the law enforcement here in downtown Seattle will be getting worse, and the wise honest resident will be carrying concealed with or without government approval.

It’s better to be tried by 12 than murdered by one.
