MOSCOW, IDAHO: The family of the slain University of Idaho student Ethan Chapin is seeking answers to a long-awaited question -- Why did the surviving victim not call the police after hearing the victims screaming? Ethan Chapin's sister-in-law made several cryptic posts online after it was revealed in the arrest warrant how surviving roommate Dylan Mortensen came face to face with a masked man on the night of the murders.
Ethan's sister-in-law revealed that Dylan called all of the roommates after she heard "screaming and crying" coming from their rooms. Posting in a thread on Reddit, she said, "D supposedly called all the girls in the house after the crying and screaming stopped and no one answered – and she still didn't call the police," adding, "She needs to explain herself and her actions that night."

What happened the night of the slaying?
Chaplin, 20, his girlfriend Xana Kernodle, 20, Maddie Mogen, 21, and Kaylee Goncalves, 20, were all killed as they slept in their campus house on November 13, 2022. However, it was revealed that the surviving roommate did not call for the cops for six hours after she heard the victims cry for help, including the time she allegedly came face to face with the killer. Dylan told the police she was awoken around 4 am after what sounded like Kaylee "playing with her dog" in a third-floor bedroom. She looked outside her room but didn't see anything.
The second time she looked outside her room was after hearing Xana's cry. Dylan claimed after hearing one of her roommates say, "There's someone here," she opened the door for the third time and that is when she saw a figure clad in black clothing and a mask only showing his "bushy eyebrows" walking towards her. She also heard the suspect say, "It's ok, I'm here to help you," revealed Daily Mail.
Dylan said she remained in a "frozen shock phase" after the encounter. Dylan was spared along with her roommate Bethany Fluke by the alleged suspect Bryan Christopher Kohberger who was arrested nearly a month after the killing on December 30.
Who called the police?
Ethan's sister-in-law revealed in an online post that the "911 caller was the friend who went in because D called him to come over because she was scared from what she heard in the night." She shared the friend "went to Xana and Ethan's room first, then called 911," questioning, "Why D or B didn't call the police once is the question?"
Police also confirmed the 911 call was made from the phone of one of the surviving roommates at 11.58 am, requesting help for an unconscious person. Although it was not revealed who spoke to the police. Suspect Byan Kohberger remains in Latah County Jail awaiting a preliminary hearing in June. Sources claim that he is expected to plead not guilty to the quadruple murder charges. If convicted, the PhD-student in criminology will be facing the death penalty.
'She is guilty or involved!'
Internet users were also left puzzled about why Dylan did not call the cops. One user wrote on Reddit, "With I mean if this happened to your family wouldn’t they be questioning absolutely everything?? I don’t think there’s a problem with saying, “why didn’t she call sooner?” I think it becomes a problem when people insinuate that she didn’t call sooner because she is guilty or involved."
Another user wrote, "So if this is true and she heard crying and screaming and then on top of that seen a masked man leaving the house, what reason is there that makes sense for not calling?"
A third user defended Dylan and said, "Why is no one bringing up the fact that it would make no fkin sense at all if she was guilty of something related to the murders? Let’s say for sake of argument, she was an accomplice. (She’s not) She knows there’s 4 dead people inside her home. Would she stay in the home of dead people for 8 hours? Would she think that’s smart move to avoid suspicion? Also I hardly ever see people reference this but the surviving roommates reactions during the actual call to cops was that of immense surprise and shock."
Another one chimed, "Questioning why not is an equally legitimate response to trauma as waiting 12 hrs to calling the police. There’s no right response." "I think it was revealed that Dylan had a traumatic experience when she was younger, so she had shut down and caused her to freeze," read another post.
