Cars of murdered Idaho students towed from crime scene –


(NewsNation) — The crime scene in Moscow, Idaho, is active again as the search for the killer in a quadruple murder enters a third week. Police had the cars of the victims towed from the house Tuesday to a secure location where they can perform further processing for evidence.

The action comes as new details emerge from prosecutors and police about the case.

Unfortunately, the investigation has not seen much progress with the suspect still at large. Prosecutor Bill Thompson said investigators still have not identified a person or persons of interest in the murders of Ethan Chapin, 20; Madison Mogen, 21; Xana Kernodle, 20; and Kaylee Goncalves, 21.

“I think it’s fair to say that there have been people of interest to the investigators and everyone that they’ve identified so far they’ve been able to exonerate. Perhaps, exonerate isn’t the best word. But they’ve been able to eliminate them as being an actual suspect. And we do not have a name of a person or persons who are actual suspects. That’s what they’re focusing on still,” Thompson said.

He added: “I’m not aware of any single person with a name that we’re focusing on, the investigators are focusing on.”

Thompson believes the case could take a while or break open at any time. It’s news of uncertainty that members of the community and family of the victims obviously do not want to hear.
