Police are still trying to determine the motive behind a killing spree in Idaho that left three people dead and wounding one.
John Lee, 29, was arrested in neighboring Washington State after rolling over his vehicle during a high-speed chase with police. Lee is alleged to have started his rampage by shooting and killing his adoptive mother, 61 year-old Terri Grzebielski. Businessman David Trail, 76, who was Lee’s landlord, would succumb to his injuries at Pullman Medical Center. Michael Chin, 39, who was with Trail discussing business at the time of the shooting, was also injured and is currently in Gritman Medical Center listed in critical condition.
After the attack against Trail and Chin, Lee would seek out Belinda Neibuhr, 47, a manager at the local Arby’s. Several witness accounts state Lee walked into the restaurant and asked staff for the manager. When Neibuhr walked into the dining area from the back Lee opened fire. Neibuhr died from her injuries at Moscow Hospital in Idaho.
At this point in the investigation, police are trying to determine if there are any links to the motive behind the shootings that took place in three separate locations. Police state so far there does not appear to be a relationship between Neibuhr and Lee other than his parents would eat frequently at that particular Arby’s location and knew the manager well. It is also suggested at this point in the investigation that Trail and Lee have had disputes in the past and Chin may have just been in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Police reports Lee had an arsenal of 5 weapons in the truck of his car and one laptop. They are awaiting a court order to investigate the contents on the laptop in the hopes to determine the cause behind the attacks.
