Another Shocking “Story Change” Involving Gruesome Murder of 4 Idaho College Students

I am starting to wonder if the police and FBI know what they’re doing in Idaho. I was convinced that they knew who the perp was and were just playing their cards close to their vests. Heck, they even met with the state’s AG on Thanksgiving, of all days, and that signaled to a lot of people that an arrest was coming — or at the very least, they had a strong suspect. But now, after this latest report, I am having serious doubts… because here we are again, with another “update” on this story, that is more like a major backtrack, and it’s coming from the cops. According to a new report, police, who have been flip-flopping this whole time on “why” these four kids were murdered, are now saying, it may have not been a “targeted” murder.

Daily Mail reported that Idaho law enforcement officials now say they are not sure if the murder of four college students were ‘targeted’ in a major backflip in the case.

The Moscow Police Department issued a press release on Wednesday saying that they are now unsure of the claim that the attack on the University of Idaho students was intended for any of the occupants of the home.

‘Detectives do not currently know if the residence or any occupants were specifically targeted but continue to investigate,’ detectives said.

The shock announcement came as family and friends were gathering to honor and remember Kaylee Goncalves, 21; Maddie Mogen, 21; Xana Kernodle, 20; and Ethan Chapin, 20, who were murdered on November 13 at their off-campus house.

No suspects have been publicly identified and the murder weapon has not been recovered.

Kaylee’s father, Steve Goncalves, told the crowd that his daughter died in the same bed as her best friend, Maddie.

It had previously been reported the two girls were in separate bedrooms when they were stabbed to death by the unknown assailant.

Early Wednesday morning, Latah County prosecutor Bill Thompson told a local news station that ‘investigators believe that this attack was intended for a specific person.’

Within hours, however, the Moscow Police Department posted to their social media accounts, making a ‘clarification.’

‘Conflicting information has been released over the past 24 hours. The Latah County Prosecutor’s Office stated the suspect(s) specifically looked at this residence, and that one or more of the occupants were undoubtedly targeted,’ the police department said in a post.

‘We have spoken with the Latah County Prosecutor’s Office and identified this was a miscommunication.

‘Detectives do not currently know if the residence or any occupants were specifically targeted but continue to investigate,’ the agency continued.

This wasn’t the first time officials close to the case had said it was a ‘targeted’ attack, however.

This is becoming really muddy and frustrating. Just last week, Moscow Police Chief James Fry told ABC News that police still ‘believe this is a targeted attack,.’

And now, we’re back to maybe it’s not targeted after all. This tells me, they don’t have a clue about who did this, or why.

The parents of those poor kids must be so frustrated and upset right now.
