The video shows a mysterious man with dead students from Idaho
Idaho police have revealed that an unharmed dog was found in the house where four University of Idaho students were brutally murdered.
The Moscow Police Department issued a statement on Monday saying that officers responding to fatal stabbings at 1122 King Road last week located the dog in a residence.
The animal was not injured and was handed over to Animal Service, police said. It has since been issued a “responsible party”.
Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen and Xana Kernodle, and Ethan Chapin were stabbed to death in an off-campus home on November 13.
More than a week later, investigators are still baffled by the case, no arrests have been made and no suspects have been identified, causing growing frustration for families and the community.
On Sunday, police admitted they had no idea if the killer was still in Moscow or had fled the area, despite the overwhelming “mess” of evidence left behind.
A timeline of brutal murders that rocked Moscow, Idaho
A week after the murder, much remains a mystery surrounding the horrific stabbings of 20-year-old Xana Kernodle, 20-year-old Ethan Chapin, 21-year-old Kaylee Goncalves and 21-year-old Madison Mogen.
Officials believe the students were killed between 3 and 4 a.m. on November 13.
Law enforcement was called to a home on King Road at 11:58 a.m. Sunday after a 911 call alerted them to an “unconscious person”.
The call was made from the mobile phone of one of the surviving roommates, but police refused to confirm the caller’s identity.
Authorities have since revealed that all four victims were stabbed to death with “sharp-edged weapons such as a knife” – although the murder weapon has not been found.

Idaho police are ruling out a connection between the murder and the brutal death of a dog, Monday’s incident
Moscow police said reports of a skinned dog were unrelated to the murder of four University of Idaho students in an off-campus residential area on November 13.
“Detectives are aware of the incident at the Latah County Sheriff’s Office regarding the report of a skinned dog and have determined that it is unrelated to this incident,” a Moscow police spokesman said. Independent.
Police also said on Tuesday that an incident reported Monday night by two young women who claimed a man was in their vehicle when they tried to enter it was not related to the murders.
The police said they had interviewed witnesses and closed the case as baseless, meaning it could not be preliminarily substantiated. They added that it may reopen if more information becomes available, but stressed that it was not related to the murders.
“During this Thanksgiving season, the family thanks God for protecting the girls, the neighbors for how quickly they came to help the girls in need, and the Moscow police for their quick and professional response last night,” a family of young women involved in the incident

Ethan Chapin was a triplet who enjoyed life to the fullest, recalls his mother
When it came time for Stacy and Jim Chapin’s triplets to go to college in 2020, they all chose the University of Idaho.
The siblings had a special bond and decided to spend their college years together.
When their parents left the college campus in Moscow, Idaho, they thought they had done it, they told KING5.
They managed to raise three wonderful adults, they told the networks.
But the dreams they had for Ethan were shattered when his life was taken in the early hours of November 13.
Ethan was visiting his girlfriend Xana Kernodle, who was also stabbed to death in a brutal attack.
As the family experiences tragedy and grieves, they remember Ethan as a kind-hearted young man who was always trying new things and loving his family.
“We were just watching something from the university, he was a spike ball champion, a volleyball champion. I mean, he literally played and did everything,” Ms Chapin told the network.

Victims posted pictures enjoying college life. A few hours later they were killed. What happened?
The quadruple murder of four University of Idaho students on November 13 shocked the university city of Moscow.
In an Instagram post the day before, 21-year-old Kaylee Goncalves shared photos of her group of friends side by side smiling carelessly at the camera in a show of typical college fun.
“Lucky one who surrounds herself with these people every day,” Kaylee Goncalves wrote on social media on the evening of November 12.
Just hours later, Goncalves, Xana Kernodle, Ethan Chapin, and Madison Mogen were killed in a rented women’s home.
Initially, local officials insisted that there was no ongoing threat to the community and that the murders were both “isolated” and “targeted”.
They have since retracted those remarks, asking residents to be careful and vigilant.

The victim wrote about “enjoying life” in the days before the killing
Xana Kernodle’s friends shared with her family an essay she wrote for an English class, her sister Jazzmin Kernodle wrote in an Instagram post.
Xana wrote about listening to Blasé Louis’ song The Child at a live concert she attended with some friends.
“It was amazing to be able to experience one of my favorite songs with some of my best friends while everyone enjoyed life. It’s one of the most important things you can do in life, enjoy the ride, not the destination,” she wrote in a November 7 essay.
Jazzmin Kernodle said those words brought her comfort as she continues to struggle with grief.
“I know this song means so much to her and now so many others. It’s a song I imagine her dancing to every time I hear it,” Kernodle wrote.

Police say Monday night’s incident is unrelated to the murders
At around 5:00 p.m. on Monday, Moscow police received a call from a woman who said she saw a man in her vehicle when she tried to open the door.
“The woman who was with her sister slammed the car door and ran out of the car screaming, calling 911. Many neighbors heard the girls screaming and came to help. They searched the area but found no one,” the police said in a statement.
Neighbors reportedly told police they had not seen anyone in or out of the vehicle, and a passerby informed the women that a man was chasing them and left before speaking to officers.
The incident was closed as unsubstantiated, “the term is used to close an incident that cannot be substantiated initially” and is not believed to be related to the murders.

Killed Idaho students often held parties with lots of people going in and out of the house, neighbors say
Jeremy Reagan, a third-year law student who lives near the scene of a murder that rocked the university city of Moscow last week, told Fox News that the victims often held their own assemblies, adding that people came and went “quite often.”
“There were parties that were pretty loud,” Reagan said. “Just like taking my dog and going to the bathroom [and] I saw people in the windows almost every night, probably four or five nights a week… it was kind of a party house, but then again, this whole neighborhood is a party district.
Another Moscow resident, Heather Tetwiler, also told the station that the students killed — Xana Kernodle, 20, Ethan Chapin, 20, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, and Madison Moge, 21 — would host typical university gatherings, but the residence “wasn’t necessarily party house.”
