MOSCOW, IDAHO: The harrowing murders of four Idaho University students have not just sent shockwaves across the US but also given birth to numerous speculations and theories regarding the killer. Though police are still working on the case and looking for the suspect, people have shared their own thoughts online trying to crack the incident.

The young people — Kaylee Goncalves, Maddie Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin — were all found murdered at their off campus house on November 13. Two other people were reportedly inside the house where the rest were killed, but they survived somehow. The Moscow Police Department has not revealed much about the killings but in a statement said, “We do not have a suspect at this time and that individual is still out there. We cannot say there is no threat to the community and as we have stated, please stay vigilant, report any suspicious activity and be aware of your surroundings at all times.”

Meanwhile, few online sleuths have suggested that the crime seemed like a work of a deranged stalker. They also debunked another theory that a college student might be involved since the area where the murders happened is filled with youngeters. A user tweeted, “I think it was a stalker. Watching and waiting for opportunity. Lots of rage. 35-45 with military experience. The average college kid doesn’t have the rage to kill the innocents as well as the intended with a knife. Stabbings are brutal.”

The second user wrote, “I think someone was waiting as well. Waited for lights to go out. Possibilities of a serial killer as well. Someone jealous of their sorority crossed my mind. Old tenant who may been evicted. Lots of scenarios. I just hope the person is caught soon.” The third one said, “In many cases it is those with proximity to the victims who commit the crime. Think about how well orchestrated and precisely timed this case of #IdahoStudents ought to have been for such a clean get away (or so we believe). The stalker/killer knew the victims. Not random #Idaho.”

“This university of idaho killing has me all the way f***** up. do you know how angry of a human being you have to be to stab 4 people to death?? so insane, i feel like it had to be someone they knew and def a stalker like situation,” the fourth user expressed and the fifth one noted, “90% of murders or rapes are committed by someone the victims knew.”

This comes after an ex-medical examiner said that a "Rambo-style" military knife was probably used to kill the students. Joseph Scott Morgan reportedly stated, “I think it goes without saying that this is very up close and personal. One word that I might use to describe this is very intimate. I don't know that I have sufficient verbiage for that. And I gotta be honest with you, I don't know in all of my years of working multiple death scenes where I ever have seen blood that is seeping outside of a residence.”

“You begin to think, was the perpetrator known so that the victim would let their guard down and open the door for them? Or was someone waiting for them back at the apartment and then essentially attacked them when they walked in?” Morgan added, while referring to cops’ probe that noted there were no signs of forced entry into the property where the victims lived.
