Oregon mom hopes Idaho killings will bring attention to her son’s murder

Banfield

(NewsNation) — Online sleuths believe an Oregon cold case from 2021 bears similarities to the Idaho homicides.

On August 13, 2021, in Salem, Oregon, Travis and Jamilyn Juetten were stabbed in the middle of the night while they slept. Travis died at the scene, and Jamilyn survived 19 stab wounds.

As noted by the sleuths, both attackers used a knife; and in both cases, there were survivors left untouched in the home.

Although the almost 15-month-old Oregon case has gone cold, Myra Juetten, Travis’ mom, told “Banfield” she hopes Idaho will bring attention to her son’s case once again.

“There’s a lot of similarities. I have no proof there’s a connection. But I’m hopeful that this will reinvigorate this case and bring attention to my son’s murder,” Myra said.

The Oregon murder also happened on the 13th of the month, sleuths pointed out.

“My son was amazing young man, and it’s very hard not to have any answers. I just wish somebody could come forward just to give that extra piece to the puzzle that we need,” Myra said. “I can’t even start grieving until I have an answer, so it’s very difficult for my family.”
