University of Idaho, 4 students found dead

It was reported by Fox News that blood was seen seeping down the wall from the house where four University of Idaho students were stabbed to death over the weekend.

Photos of the crime scene showed blood dripping from the first-floor bedroom down an exterior wall at the back of the two-story house.

“It was very bloody scene inside,” an officer said.

Last September, Campus security sent out what is known as a “Vandal Alert” to students and staff, saying in the subject line, “Threat with Knife.” This was to notify the community of the concerning incident.

“The Moscow Police Department received a report that a group of students was walking between the Steam Plant parking lot (Lot #14) and the Student Recreation Center on Paradise Path and were threatened by a person with a knife,” states the alert from Sept. 12.

“No individual was harmed in the incident, but campus community members are advised to be cautious,” the notification states. 

The suspect was described as a White male around the age of 18 and 22, in all-black clothing and a black baseball cap, and riding a mountain bike.

The Police Department wouldn’t comment on the incident, whether the suspect had been caught or whether the same person was be connected to the Nov. 13 quadruple homicides that happened only one mile away.

“I have no information on that at this time,” Capt. Anthony Dahlinger told Fox News Digital. 

Authorities announced Tuesday that they had not recovered the murder weapon but believed it was most likely a knife and called the murders an “isolated, targeted attack.” and also added, “There is no imminent threat to the community.” 

The college students’ bodies were discovered Sunday morning after police responded to a call of an unconscious person at a rented home on King Road near the university’s fraternity row.

The victims are Ethan Chapin, 20, of Conway, Washington; Madison Mogen, 21, of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; Xana Kernodle, 20, of Avondale, Arizona; and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, of Rathdrum, Idaho.

Authorities have remained tight-lipped but mentioned that the killer is still at large. Moscow Mayor Art Bettge previously called the killings a “crime of passion.”
