    UGLY: Two stabbed while walking together

    This happened around 8:00 last night, in the Salt Lake valley. From what I can find, it looks like an ambush, where neither had time to fight back at all.
    Also, it sound like a gang initiation quite a bit. Nothing stolen, no warning, just a senseless attack. - Two stabbed on Jordan River Parkway trail

    TAYLORSVILLE -- A young woman who was stabbed along the Jordan Parkway in Taylorsville Wednesday night has died from her injuries. Investigators are looking for three men who may have been involved, but officers say they have very limited information about who the suspects are.

    The 18-year-old woman was stabbed around 8 p.m. along the Jordan River Parkway at about 4100 South. Police say she was with a 21-year-old man just west of the trail near a bridge when they were attacked.

    Det. Shannon Bennett with the Taylorsville Police Department says, "The female victim was stabbed in the abdomen. The male was stabbed in the face area, around the eye."

    The man and woman were rushed to the hospital in critical condition. Once there, the woman died. Police say the man is expected to survive.

    They say he provided them with some information about the stabbing, but the information is very limited regarding the attackers.

    Witnesses tell police they saw three men flee the Jordan River Parkway southbound at about the time the stabbing occurred. They did not provide a detailed description.

    Here is more on the story. Very sad, and if true, incredibly stupid. - Police: Fatal parkway stabbing was drug deal gone bad

    Police: Fatal parkway stabbing was drug deal gone bad

    TAYLORSVILLE -- Police in Taylorsville say a drug deal led to the stabbing death of an 18-year-old woman Wednesday night. They are now looking for three men.

    Heather Quast and her friend 21-year-old Eric Russon were on the Jordan Parkway when they were both stabbed. Relatives of Russon say they had arranged to meet three men who wanted to buy marijuana.

    Police say the attack happened in a field off the parkway at about 4100 South. Russon told his family that one of the men pulled out a fake gun, and then another pulled out a knife.

    "When the people attacked them, Eric tried his best to keep heather behind him; and when she tried to run, they wanted money," Russon's mother said.

    "When [Heater] tried to run, they went after her," Russon's mother continued. "Eric got slashed many times in the process. He let the purse go when he saw heather fall, and he took his shirt off, and he tried to save her life."

    Heather Quast Quast was stabbed in the stomach, and Russon was stabbed in the face, near his eye.

    Quast and Russon were taken to Intermountain Medical Center in critical condition. Once there, Quast died.

    Police say Russon's injuries are serious but not severe. His family says he could lose his eye, but the pain he feels from Quast's death is much worse because he couldn't save her.

    "As soon as my brother knew what was going on, my brother started fighting with the people," brother Joseph Russon said. "They pulled out a knife, and he told Heather to run, and he didn't know that she got stabbed."

    Family members say Russon and Quast had been living along the Parkway. Quast's grandmother, Sharlene Nolan, says the teen's parents asked her to leave home because she was doing and dealing drugs.

    Nolan says Quast was a good girl who loved music. She says Quast started hanging out with the wrong crowd. "She was doing really good, then just got with the wrong crowd," Nolan said. A neighbor who knows Quast and Russon said, "She was a good girl. She really was. A little confused, a little mixed up, but it's a shame that they live on the river like they do." Nolan thinks Russon may know the men responsible for Quast's death.

    "My daughter says they feel that the kid knows who they were, because he didn't get hurt but was carrying a wad of money," Nolan said. "Knowing Heather, she's like her mom. She'd fight and put up a fight before she let them take the money."

    Heather is also survived by her parents, Rachelle and Jerry Quast, and sister Amber, who is just 18 months apart. Heather was to turn 19 years old in July.

    Meanwhile, police are looking for three males in their late teens or early-20s; one of them has a tattoo on his neck.

    "Everybody that is available is out here helping us right now, trying to help us catch these people," said Taylorsville police Detective Shannon Bennett. "It's very concerning to us. We want to find these people and get them off the street."

    Officers are talking to Russon, whom they say is cooperating with them. He is now out of the hospital and helping investigators look for evidence at the scene of the crime.

    Anyone with any information on this case should call police at 801-743-7000.
