My girlfriend's throat was cut
My girlfriend goes to Indiana University, and she and a group of people were walking back to their dorms from a party. Obviously, they were drunk, and just out of nowhere some dude ran up and cut all their throats. They're all fine, but it's scary because I was talking to her on the phone when it happened. There are some rumors of it happening more, sometime before it happened to her, and some after, so there was other peoples' blood on the knife when she was cut.
One weird thing: All their cuts look like they were caused by different blades or utensils. One guy's looks like a knife, my girlfriends like a very smooth razor. They're all completely different. And there have been over 6 sirens tonight (6 different times) and most of them have been ambulances, so he's probably struck again (we'll find out in tomorrow's news.)
Why would he do this? No one saw but a glimpse of him, so they have zero suspect leads. Why would he (possibly) use different blades?
My fear is disease spread, either from an intentionally infected knife or from the blood already on the knife when she got cut. I've searched for other criminal instances of this happening and I haven't found any. She's going to get tested, but most diseases and viruses take 2 to 8 weeks to show up (so she'll get tested in 2) and then another 2 weeks to get the results back. So that's at least a month that I'm not going to see her. I'm not going to risk my health to make her feel better.
But, the point of this thread is: What do you guys think the motive was? Is it possible to spread diseases this way?
One last bit of info. They know that he was definitely college age, so he wasn't some creepy guy. May have been some dude hopped up on coke, or doing some retarded initiation that is just way too extreme. But he did go "group hopping" also--he didn't seem to target anyone. He just found groups, cut them all on the throat, and ran to the next.
I'm scared and confused for her health. What do you guys think?
