Why don’t Idaho police release more information on murders? -thelocalreport.in


(NewsNation) — Idaho police may have more information on the murder of four students than they are releasing to the public, a former FBI agent told NewsNation.

Former FBI Special Agent Steve Burmeister spoke with “Morning In America” ​​about the ongoing investigation into the murder of four University of Idaho students. As of Sunday, police have said they have no suspects in the case and have not recovered the weapon used in the killing.

“It’s a fine balance, when anytime you have investigators involved, that they’re trying to provide information to the public, yet at the same time, preserve the sanctity of that investigation,” Burmeister said.

One reason police may not release certain information, he said, is so they can use it to fact-check and verify witness statements.

Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin were found murdered near campus on Nov. 13. The three women were roommates and Chapin was dating Kernodle. Two other roommates were in the house and were not harmed.

Police initially told residents of Moscow, Idaho not to be worried then backtracked and said they could not guarantee there was no risk to the community.
