Idaho college murders: Dog found alive and unharmed at bloody stab site

Idaho police have confirmed that an unharmed dog was found at the site of the brutal murder of four University of Idaho students.

The Moscow Police Department issued a statement on Monday saying that officers responding to the fatal stabbings at 1122 King Road on November 13 located the dog in a residence. The animal was uninjured and was handed over to Animal Service, police said, and has since been handed over to the “responsible party”.

It is unclear if the dog belongs to one of the surviving roommates or to the victims – Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20, who did not live in the house but was visiting in Kernodle.

It has not been revealed whether the still-at-large killer is believed to have spared the dog’s life or had never had contact with it.

Police also provided an update on Monday ahead of the press on Wednesday, saying that reports of a skinned dog three miles from the crime scene a few weeks ago are not related to the murders.

“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.

During a press conference on Sunday, Police Captain Roger Lanier denied reports that the victims were found bound and gagged, and said that any information circulating online about the identity of the 911 caller was merely speculation.

Mr. Lanier added that the two surviving roommates, the man seen in the Twitch video that also showed Goncalves and Mogen at the food truck hours before the murders, and the person who drove them home that night, are not considered suspects.

Autopsy results released last week revealed that all four had suffered multiple stab wounds with a large knife.

The deaths have been ruled homicides and the killer or killers are still at large a week after the killing. Latah County Coroner Cathy Mabbutt confirmed that some of the victims had defensive stab wounds, adding that she had not seen “nothing, nothing like that” in her nearly 20-year career.

There were no signs of sexual assault on any of the victims, but each had “pretty extensive” wounds, she told NBC News, confirming that each victim had been stabbed a different number of times and in different places on the body.

Officials declined to reveal who called 911, but gave new details about the mysterious call, adding that it was made from the cell phone of one of the two roommates.

Authorities said more details would be revealed at a press conference scheduled for Wednesday.
