Chilling Updates In Case of 4 Idaho State College Students Stabbed to Death in One House

Chilling Updates In Case of 4 Idaho State College Students Stabbed to Death in One House

This story is so sad and bizarre. We don’t know a lot, and new info is still coming out, but here’s what we know so far about the murder of 4 young college kids at the University of Idaho: Two roommates were at the Moscow, Idaho home while four University of Idaho students were killed on early Sunday morning, but didn’t call 911 to report the incident until around noon, according to Moscow Police Department Chief James Fry. Ethan Chapin, 20; Xana Kernodle, 20; Madison Mogen, 21; and Kaylee Goncalves, 21 were killed inside a home on King Road between the hours of 3 and 4:00 a.m., according to Moscow Mayor Art Bettge.

Police found the deceased students when responding to a call regarding an unconscious person on Sunday at 11:58 a.m.

The two roommates were “unhurt,” and didn’t say if the individuals were witnesses to the four students being killed.

As of Wednesday night, Fry said that police don’t have a suspect and are working to identify a person of interest.

There are actually a couple of chilling updates to this story. The first is that police indicated early on that perhaps the group was killed by somebody they knew. But that appears to have changed now. This retired police detective talks about how the investigation has taken an even scarier turn:

The next very creepy update is the type of weapon they are looking for. It’s said to be a “Rambo-style” knife. That’s what they believed was used to kill all four people.

The New York Post reported that police investigating the brutal slaughter of four University of Idaho students appear to be searching for a “Rambo”-style knife in the slayings, a local store owner said.

Moscow Building Supply general manager Scott Jutte told the Idaho Statesman that a police officer stopped by the retailer more than once this week to inquire about the possible sale of a KA-BAR brand combat blade.

“They were specifically asking whether or not we carry KA-BAR-style knives, which we do not,” Jutte told the paper. “If we did, we could’ve reviewed surveillance footage. But it wasn’t something I could help them with.”

He said the tactical knives used by US Marines in the 1940s are “similar to the knife Rambo has,” Jutte added, referring to the Vietnam vet character famously played by actor Sylvester Stallone.

“(KA-BAR) is more of a combat knife. It’s not really something that we specialize in,” added Jutte, who said his store sells mostly hunting knives.

On its website, KA-BAR, of Olean, New York, describes its signature blade as its “most famous knife.”

The “knives became so well recognized for their quality and so abundant in number that ‘Kabar’ became the name by which many referred to this knife pattern, regardless of whether the knife was manufactured at the actual KA-BAR facility,” it says.

“Today, the original USMC Fighting and Utility Knife remains the first choice for many men and women of service who carry it as their personal knife option,” the company adds.

On Wednesday, Moscow police Capt. Anthony Dahlinger would neither confirm nor deny to the Statesman that investigators from the department visited the store or interviewed Jutte.

“I can’t speak to that. I don’t have any new information to share,” he told the paper.

Police did not respond to the request for comment Thursday.

Early on, the media said this could be some “revenge” type killing, but with police now walking back their statement about how the “community” wasn’t in danger, you have to wonder if this could have been an act committed by a serial killer. But why were the other students spared?

So many questions.

This has a dark and insidious “Ted Bundy” vibe written all over it.
