I was a Tulane student in 1976 when 20-year-old Ken Gutters was stabbed to death on campus. Gutters’ death is one of the most notorious attacks on a student on U.S. soil, and it has left a lasting impression on Tulane and its students. In this blog post, we will explore the events leading up to Gutters’ death, as well as the legacy he left behind. We hope that by sharing his story, we can help ensure that such an attack never happens again.
Background of the Case
On November 10, 2014, Tulane University student Ken Gutters was stabbed to death outside of his off-campus residence. The case has been unsolved and is still under investigation.
Ken Gutters was a sophomore at Tulane University studying political science. He was originally from Grand Island, Nebraska and was a member of the Sigma Pi fraternity. At the time of his death, he was also enrolled in a summer course in Spain.
Gutters’ friends and family are desperate for information on what happened that night. They believe that someone out there knows what happened to him and they want to find out who did it. In honor of Ken Gutters, members of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity have established the Ken Gutter Memorial Scholarship in his name. This scholarship will be given to a Tulane student who demonstrates exceptional leadership qualities and has a passion for public service.
Investigation into the Death of Ken Gutters
Ken Gutters, a Tulane University student who was stabbed to death last Friday night, has left behind his family and friends in mourning.
Gutters, 21, was known on campus as an outspoken activist and community leader. He was also a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity.

Suspect in Custody
On Monday, September 17th, 2014, Tulane University released a statement announcing that a student was found dead after being stabbed in the dormitory. The victim has been identified as Ken Gutters, 21 years old.
The suspect, 20-year-old Trevonte Rice has been apprehended and is now in custody awaiting trial for first-degree murder. Rice is from New Orleans, Louisiana and was a student at Tulane University.
