    Depending on the size of his knife I think I'd have grabbed one of those little tire billy clubs truck stops sell and start pounding him as hard as I could. Can't promise it would save anyone or myself but he would at least stop stabbing women for a little while.

    According to the police, two of the witnesses did try to stop him. He also worked as a correctional officer with the North Carolina Department of Safety from August 2014 to May 2019.

    Source: Notebook found in stabbing suspect's truck, may offer insight into mental state

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Notes believed to be from the suspect who stabbed three truck stop employees to death Tuesday suggested he may not have been mentally well. A source close to the investigation showed WBIR pages of the notebook he said law enforcement recovered from Idris Abdus Salaam's truck.

    The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Abdus-Salaam, 33, stabbed four women at the Pilot Travel Center off Interstate 40 on Strawberry Plains Pike just before 7 o'clock Tuesday morning. Knox County Sheriff's deputies shot and killed Abdus-Salaam shortly after arriving on scene.

    TBI identified him as a truck driver from North Carolina. Agents could be seen examining a tractor-trailer truck parked near the Pilot Tuesday afternoon.

    The notebook the source said was found in the truck contains graphic writing believed to be from Abdus-Salaam.

    It suggested he may not be mentally well.

    Because of the graphic nature of the writing and because law enforcement has not yet confirmed or denied the existence of this notebook, WBIR is not sharing the full text.

    A public records search showed a number of speeding violations on Abdus-Salaam's record. In 2018, he faced a criminal charge in Wake County, North Carolina for eluding arrest/fleeing.

    TBI said Abdus-Salaam had no criminal record in Tennessee.

    Tuesday, a TBI spokesperson confirmed two witnesses attempted to subdue him during the attack.

    TBI identified the three women killed, all employees of the Pilot Travel Center, as 57-year-old Joyce Whaley, 51-year-old Patricia Denise Nibbe, and 41-year-old Nettie R. Spencer.

    The fourth woman stabbed, a customer at the convenience store, was released from the hospital Wednesday. TBI will not release her name.

    You’ve made two very wrong assumptions in your response which pretty much tells me what I needed to know about you. Easy to assume behind that keyboard.

    I was going to say... not a whole lot of O/O frequent the Pilot. It's pretty much gotta be a dire emergency before I'd even set foot in their parking lot.

    This is America. For now, you can still live wherever you want. Willingly living in a communist ####hole is not an excuse.
