'A masked man entered the house at 3am': Shocking footage drives web sleuths' new theory on Idaho murders
MOSCOW, IDAHO: Police are looking into accusations that one of the victims had a stalker, per the claims, and the authorities are working actively to find out the accused at the crime scene. Ethan Chapin, 20, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, were discovered dead with multiple stab wounds on the morning of November 13.
Web sleuths are digging actively into this harrowing murder case, as one of the Reddit users has exhibited speculation regarding this investigation. According to him, a 'Mask Man' was spotted on the property of the students on King's Road, roundabout 3 am. The speculation was shared by user named Julian James on Facebook, and was later shared on Reddit.
The user wrote, "It's being reported that local said police have footage from doorbell cam of a masked man entering or at least walking up to the house around 3 am and got a somewhat discernible screengrab of his eyes and this was shown to the neighborhood frat/sorority houses, and I guess the frat identified the photo instantly as a man who lives on the same street. Another local admitted that they, in fact, gave the footage to the police."
However, all the information mentioned by the Reddit user is speculation and has not yet been confirmed by the official authorities. The Moscow Police Department stated on November 25, Friday night, that investigators are evaluating more than 260 digital submissions - including videos and images - sent by the public via an FBI link. Detectives request all available footage, whether or not there appears to be motion and content, according to a police press release issued late Friday.
On the night of the murders, Goncalves and Mogen were at a sports bar, while Chapin and Kernodle were at a fraternity party. When the four bodies were discovered, two roommates were present. Police believe the roommates were not engaged in the deaths. According to a Friday update from Moscow police, investigators have forwarded 113 pieces of physical evidence they collected to the Idaho State Police crime lab for processing. Police stated earlier this week that they had reviewed over 1,000 tips and interrogated over 150 people, but up till now, there have been no arrests made or murder weapons recovered, as reported by CNN.
The FBI, state police, and Moscow police are all involved in the murder investigation. Authorities have stated that they have not ruled out the possibility that more than one person was involved in the deaths. The police believe the attack was premeditated, as reported by MEAWW.
