it seems to me by what limited info I read that the police are saying the weapon was a long blade of some sort and that they dont think the victim ans assailant were connected. If this is random then finding the person will be difficult. So, my idea was to announce to the public to report anyone who you know owns a sword or machete or similar weapon(s) and please report anyone who knows anyone who has "practiced" or played with such a weapon. My wife said that a popular video game uses samari swords.. could it be a "curiosity" killing..? Some dude who plays these games and has a sword and want to see if it really works? A random crime of this sort seems pretty rare, so it seems it is most likely some kind of sick experimentation by a local, rather than the act of some kind of serial killer.. or a serial killer wannabe maybe. I suggest the investigators set up a specific tip-lines for anyone who fit various profiles and scenarios. They must have an fbi profile worked up, so all tips would be fed in to system and cross referenced and prioritized.

maybe a facebook page to report anyone who has been seen talking about, expiramenting with or evenn owns such a weapon. How many people even own a machete or sword in ashland? I imagine its not that many.. A town of 25,000 and even if one in 100 have such a weapon ask them to register it or see if its missing... or something. Chances are someone has seen or knows of someone who has been seen with this kind of weapon. Or, report anyone who has left the area after the killing... I have heard people say its probably a homeless person or connected to the occupy movement.. that seems unlikey, but these "alternative" communities to attract some wierd f-ing people, despite that %99.9 are good moral people.
