Idaho Police Clarify Comments on Targeting of Killings –

(NewsNation) — The Moscow Police Department has issued a clarification regarding statements the Latah County Prosecutor’s Office shared regarding the murders of Idaho students.

Morgan Romero, host for KTVB in Boise, tweeted

On Wednesday night, Latah County, Idaho District Attorney Bill Thompson confirmed that one of the victims in the home was, in fact, the target of the murders. It is not clear which student he was referring to.

On Tuesday night, Thompson told NewsNation’s Brian Entin that the target wasn’t necessarily a person, but rather the house itself.

Moscow police said the prosecutor has published conflicting information in the past 24 hours.

“The Latah County Prosecutor’s Office stated that the suspects specifically observed this residence and that one or more of the occupants was undoubtedly attacked,” Moscow police said. “We have spoken with the Latah County District Attorney’s Office and identified that this was a miscommunication. Detectives do not currently know if the residence or the occupants were targeted specifically, but are continuing to investigate.”

The Moscow police statement comes on the heels of community members gathering at the University of Idaho to remember the four students who were stabbed to death in an off-campus rental house on November 13.
