Moscow PD Dispelling Rumors With Latest Update On Investigation Into Murders Of UI Students

The Moscow Police Department released updated information about their investigation into the killings of four University of Idaho students.  The students were found stabbed to death inside an apartment just South of campus a week ago Sunday on November 13th.

Monday’s updated press release from the Moscow PD focused on dispelling rumors.  The Latah County Sheriff’s Office responded to an incident of a skinned dog and investigators have determined it’s unrelated to the murders.  Moscow Police Detectives are also aware of reports of deceased animals left at the murder scene.  Investigators have determined it was wildlife activity that’s unrelated to the killings.  A dog was found at the apartment unharmed and was turned over to animal services which released the dog to a responsible party.

UI students Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Ethan Chapin and Xana Kernodle were found dead inside the apartment.  No suspects have been arrested.  The Moscow Police are being assisted by the FBI and Idaho State Police.  There will be a press conference Wednesday afternoon to update the public on the investigation.
