Idaho Police are investigating a possible connection to the Salem Oregon stabbing – watch live


Video shows mystery man with murdered Idaho students

Questions are raised about a possible connection between the quadruple murder of four University of Idaho students and a 2021 stabbing murder in Salem, Oregon, which also remains unsolved.

In both cases, an attacker broke into a house around 3 a.m. and attacked victims in their beds with a knife while other people were in the house.

Asked about the matter at a press conference on Wednesday, Moscow police chief James Fry confirmed that he had received a tip and that there are “things we are going to follow up on”.

That is what the mother of the man who died in the attack 15 months ago said TUSEN that finding out who killed her son and also catching the killer of the slain students in Idaho would be “the best Christmas gift ever.”

Frustration mounts over the investigation into the murders of Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin, as no arrests have been made and no suspects have been identified 11 days after the brutal stabbings.


Moscow police dispel online speculation

“We know people want answers, we want answers too,” said Idaho Police Department Colonel Kedrick Wills.

“Please be patient while we go through this investigation. We owe that to these young children. For these young adults. We owe it to them. And we are absolutely committed to mak[ing] sure that will happen.”

On Sunday, Police Chief Roger Lanier denied reports that the victims were found bound and gagged and said any information circulating about the identity of the 911 caller was mere speculation.

Housemates butchered in bed. The murder mystery in Idaho that stunned the police

Almost everything that happened after 1:45 a.m. on November 13 in the student house where four students were murdered remains a mystery.

Along with varying accounts from law enforcement and wild social media speculation that have seeped into the local rumor mill, investigators continue to unravel the events leading up to the attack. TUSEN‘s Sheila Flynn reports.

Sheila reports: “As the investigation entered its ninth day on Monday, residents remained nervous and clueless about what to think in the 25,000-resident city that borders Washington state.”

“The University of Idaho is Moscow’s largest employer. The city is nestled among rolling hills and farms in Latah County, known for its production of wheat and other grains. The Welcome to Moscow sign is just a few feet away from the Welcome to Idaho sign.

Victims often organized ‘parties with many people coming in and out of the house’

Neighbors of the four murdered University of Idaho students in Idaho said the victims often hosted parties at their rental home.

Jeremy Reagan, a third-year law student who lives near the scene of the murders that shook the university city of Moscow last week, told TUSEN News that the victims often staged stand-alone gatherings, adding that people enter the house “quite often.”

“There were parties that were quite noisy,” Reagan said.

“Like I would take my dog ​​in and out to go to the bathroom [and] I used to see 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 place.

Criminal expert warns bloody crime scenes can be challenging for investigators

Joseph Scott Morgan, a leading forensic investigator at Jacksonville State University, told TUSEN News that the perpetrator is likely a predator who did not know the victims personally.

“From a blood evidence point of view, this is a very gory scene,” Mr Morgan added.

‘It becomes a very complicated matter if you are going to do blood tests, if you are going to do TUSEN typing. It’s a big challenge.”

Mr Morgan said he believes this is the kind of case that is solved by “public participation and tips” because the TUSEN evidence collected at the scene could have come from someone who is not in a law enforcement database.
