4 College students murdered

Thu Nov 17, 2022 3:02 pm

This one is scary. Especially since 2 other roommates were home and didn't call 911 until much later? Didn't hear anything and no forced entry? So senseless and a waste of 4 lives. This stinks, I hope the local police can ID a suspect soon.

This is getting a lot of coverage here in the Seattle area as the male victim is from a small town north of here, where everyone in town pretty much knows everyone else. Very mysterious circumstances for sure.

Me too this is downright scary. I am still confused as too the other two in the house. Did they hear anything? Why so long to alert authorities?

Were the other 2 in the house so drunk or passed out on drugs they didn't wake up ? They had to hear the attack. Perhaps they are scared of speaking out due to some threat on their lives ? The lack of information so far, likely to assure the investigation is properly done, raises many questions.

You also had the murder of 3, injury of 2 others on the campus of University of Virginia, all connected to the football team and the alleged murders a former member of the team. Some info as to a motive includes bullying by some of those killed on the alleged murderer. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/unive ... r-AA14dn1G

I wonder if the Moscow PD is in over their head on this one and should get the state police involved?

This police chief is sending peculiar messages: there is no worry for the community, it wasn't a murder suicide and nobody is under arrest.

He better have a god reason when it all comes out, or he better find a new profession.

Edit:
Now the police are saying that they "can't say there's no threat to the community".

A quadruple murder isn't going to get worked exclusively by the small-town podunk PD that had its last murder 7 years ago. There will be FBI agents sent from Seattle already on the ground there to assist, probably State Police assets as well, and maybe from Washington too, given its location right by the border.

Or that were playing on their Xbox/PS with headphones on, there are plenty of reasons before we jump to the drunk/drugs conclusion.

The UVA one was truly unbelievable. What does it take to get suspended from school these days?! This guy was likely psychotic and carrying a gun AND THEY KNEW THAT. I would hate to be a school administrator. Thank god I’m not.

I guess that even big football players can be bullied. Maybe something should be done about that? Not that it excuses shooting anyone...

Someone reporting on this case early on said it was a "crime of passion". I wonder if that is still a lead?

When someone gets rejected or it's a scorned lover I doubt it will be 4 people. I am getting the feeling the local PD can't handle this. Someone with experience better step in. These two that were in the house has to know something. 4 people can't be killed by hand without something being seen or heard.

There are reports the shooter at UVA was bullied. LCD wanted to know why he was armed when he had problems, I just replied that maybe they should also do something about bullying.

I agree but there was that case in Italy where a couple was accused of murder but they both said it was an accident during sex. Could it be the two women were "loud" so roommates didn't notice? Far fetched, I know. And I doubt screams during passion could be mistaken for screams of terror. Someone in the house does know something, as you say.

The two other roommates know something, the police should have them surveilled.

I heard a report earlier today about tactical gear and a specific tactical knife used. So, police know something.

Many moons ago, I would visit my friend who went to UI. We would show up at house parties. Me, that only one person knew, and him, who only knew like five people. Out of the like 50 or so people at the party. I have not spent any time in Moscow recently, but that was the atmosphere back then.

Just a housekeeping point:

Spokane County is assisting Latah County Sherriff and Moscow Police in this investigation. Spokane County Coroner performed the autopsies as well. Spokane is the nearest major city to Moscow. They have their share of murders, so they are better equiped to investigate than Latah County or Moscow.

Good to hear, the local PD is out of their league and we needs some progress made on this.

TMZ just breaking that two of the students made frantic calls to a friend just before the murders. As soon as source goes live I will post.

Agree, one of the things people get misled by movies and TV shows with is that murders are very quiet.

There was some sort of interview with a crime scene investigator, long-form, that I saw many years ago. He went into disturbing detail on various ways people are killed and what it's like in reality. It's a primal fight for your life, really base, animal instincts kick in as a way to defend yourself. Adrenaline courses through your body, you look for anything you can use to protect yourself, retreat to safety, scream and shout, etc.

Two people being home is a real question mark to me... was it confirmed they were home at the time of the killings?

Looks like some of the victims were asleep at the time of the incident.
More than 40 FBI agents have been assigned to the case, including 22 investigators in Moscow working with the Idaho State Police and local authorities.
The four University of Idaho students who were killed Sunday in an off-campus house probably were asleep when they were stabbed, the county coroner said, and some of them showed signs of trying to fight their attacker.

Each was stabbed multiple times, and some had defensive wounds, the Latah County coroner said in a statement released late Friday by police in Moscow, Idaho

On the other hand, one is often surprised what people manage to ignore. Robbers have managed to clear out entire apartments while the family was sitting in front of the TV, unaware what was going on.

Personally, if I'm asleep or wearing headphones, I tend to not notice anything short of the (earpiercingly loud) fire alarm. WW3 could be waged in my front yard and I would only realize after waking up the next morning. It's great for sleeping on planes or trains, though.

Headphones over both ears and back to the rest of the house, it is possible. The brosband talks to me as soon as he comes through the door after work. As long as we have been together, I have always had only one of my ears with the headphones, the other free to hear him. I can carry on a conversation with him and enjoy a video at the same time. Some of these hard core gamers, though, I doubt they think about that.

After all of this time, we're finally learning some basic facts, that the home had 3 floors, and a basement. Or maybe the MSM counts the basement as a floor. Who knows what rules they follow. Their own, I guess...

Anyway, here is a timeline, to to try and make sense of what happened when, and where...

Confirmed, a 3 story home with a basement. But sadly no Ring doorbell or Ring floodlight security camera....

As a side note, does anyone know how common it is for 4-6 girls in college to rent a home??
I was trying to remember if anyone I knew when in college that had rented a home for 4-6 people... Can't think of one example.

Very common. Many places when I went to college specifically designed 3 and 4 bedroom apartments each with their own bathroom.
Some of them had 2 people per room.

Also not uncommon, if you call 911 and say “I can’t wake my friend up and they have blood on them” they will typically dispatch it as an unconscious person call.

I was mainly responding to the poster who thought the 911 operator must've told them not to touch anything or let anyone around. If it was an "unconscious person" call, I doubt it, while if it was a "stabbing victim", they would've.

I knew college students who lived in apartments. Some even lived just off campus in a 20 story unit. But I didn't know of anyone that was living in a rented home with 4-6 people back in the day.

Very common. Many places when I went to college specifically designed 3 and 4 bedroom apartments each with their own bathroom.
Some of them had 2 people per room.


I knew college students who lived in apartments. Some even lived just off campus in a 20 story unit. But I didn't know of anyone that was living in a rented home with 4-6 people back in the day.


Depends on what school. University of Washington? No. University of Idaho? Yes. There are more affordable homes to rent than apartments available in Moscow versus Seattle.

Residents and students in Moscow are getting frustrated by the lack of information regarding this crime

Idaho students’ unsolved deaths prompt rumors, harassment

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Investigators have yet to name a suspect in the stabbing deaths of four University of Idaho students who were found dead in a home near campus last month. But would-be armchair detectives and internet sleuths have come up with several of their own, the conclusions often based on conjecture and rumor.

Online forums with thousands of members are full of people speculating about possible motives, doxxing the victims’ friends and acquaintances and even outright labeling some people as murderers.

“People are going down these rabbit holes, and they’re hyperfocusing on one individual and attacking that individual,” said Tauna Davis, an Idaho State Police trooper who is helping the Moscow Police Department handle the influx of media interview requests. “You’re attacking, most likely, an innocent person.”

Relatively few details have been released about the homicides, which have left the small college town shaken and grieving for Madison Mogen, Kaylee Goncalves, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin. The four were friends and all members of the university’s Greek system.

Lack of transparency by the police can lead to greater harm.

But the police don't want to tip their hand. It is frustrating and scary but giving up all the information police have would cause more harm toward innocent people and, possibly, suspects escaping.
