Oskaloosa Murder

A 22-year-old William Penn student has died from a stabbing that happened  in an off-campus incident in Oskaloosa.

Mike Motsinger of the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation said the fight happened in a residential area of Oskaloosa late last night.

“It appears there was some type of traffic accident earlier in the evening, about a half-hour to an hour before the actual fight that occurred,” he told Radio Iowa in a telephone interview.

Marquis Todd of Woodridge, Illinois, was a former member of the William Penn men’s basketball team. Oskaloosa police responding to a 911 call about the fight found the injured student at a convenience store in Oskaloosa shortly before 11 p.m.

Motsinger said investigators have interviewed witnesses and those who were involved in the fight.

“We are getting cooperation,” Motsinger said.
