Police: Sixth person on lease in house where students were killed – Thelocalreport.in

(NewsNation) — New details have emerged in the case of four University of Idaho students murdered in their off-campus rental home on November 13 in Moscow.

A county coroner’s preliminary report determined that the students, identified as Ethan Chapin, 20; Madison Mogen, 21; Xana Kernodle, 20; and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, all died of stab wounds and were likely asleep at the time of their murders.

Detectives now know of a sixth person listed on the home’s lease. As of Thursday night, Moscow police do not believe the person on the lease was there at the time of the fatal stabbings.

Police will not share exactly where the victims are located inside the rental home that is now a crime scene. But based on pictures of the interior, reviewed by NewsNation, it appears there are two bedrooms on the first floor with a bathroom in between. The second floor also appears to have two bedrooms and another bathroom. On the third floor, there are two bedrooms and another bathroom. According to investigators, the murders occurred on the second and third floors of the home.

Moscow police say they remain steadfast in their belief that the incident was a “targeted attack.” Investigators have not determined if the target was the house or the people who lived there.

Police issued a clarification on the matter, saying there was an “internal communication miscommunication” after Latah County, Idaho, District Attorney Bill Thompson told NewsNation it wasn’t necessarily a victim who was at the point. look, but rather the house itself.
