One week after four University of Idaho students were found dead in their off-campus Moscow house, Moscow Police Captain Roger Lanier said authorities had no suspect or weapon. Chief James Fry reported 646 tips and over 90 interviews in a Sunday press conference.
“We’re trying to accelerate anything that would possibly lead to a suspect,” Latah County prosecutor Bill Thompson said Saturday. Last Sunday, police found Ethan Chapin, 20, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Madison Mogen, 21, dead. The weapon was not found, but a county coroner stated the victims were stabbed.
Thompson was one of five investigators who spent two hours at the crime scene Saturday
“I wish we had more answers, and they’re still asking questions,” Thompson added. Many students left Moscow before the autumn break due to the killings and lack of answers. Last week, police were unable to determine public risk.
Moscow Police Chief James Fry said Wednesday, “We cannot pretend there’s no threat to the community and as we have highlighted, please be attentive, report any suspicious activity, and be careful of your surroundings at all times.
Zachary Turpin, who posted on social media that he “can’t in good conscience hold class” until investigators identify a murder suspect, was one of many professors who canceled classes last week. The FBI, state, and municipal police help the Moscow Police Department. Moscow police reported 38 interviews with people “who may have information about the murders” on Friday night.
“To ascertain if a fixed-blade knife had been recently purchased,” Moscow police detectives contacted local businesses. According to the statement, three dumpsters on a street near the property were seized for evidence. Locals could provide tips via email. Detectives were working on processing over 500 tips received as of Friday late afternoon, officials claimed.

Police filling chronology
This week, investigators began creating a timeline of the student’s final known locations before the tragedy. Chapin and Kernodle attended a Sigma Chi fraternity home party from 8 to 9 p.m. Saturday. Goncalves and Mogen spent 10–1:30 a.m. at a local sports tavern. A Twitch video from the food truck shows the two orders.
They talked while waiting for their dinner for roughly 10 minutes. CNN stated the truck manager noticed no difficulty or danger. Police said a “private party” drove Goncalves and Mogen home around 1:45 a.m. All four victims returned home at 1:45 a.m. Sunday. Saturday police stated the driver was not engaged in the deaths.
Investigators Will Then Identify How And When The Attack Occurred
Moscow police received a 911 call about an “unconscious individual” before noon Sunday and found the four students dead. Officers detected no forced entry. On Sunday, Fry told reporters that one of the surviving roommates called 911, but he wouldn’t say which one. Fry said “friends had arrived at the spot” and the 911 caller was not a suspect.

Jeffrey Kernodle told CNN station KPHO/KTVK that the house may have been entered through a sliding door. Saturday, investigators said one of the two surviving roommates contacted 911 from their phone. They survived a home attack. The two were not involved, Moscow police said Friday.
