MOSCOW, IDAHO: Four students from the University of Idaho — namely, Xana Kernodle, Madison Mogen, Kaylee Goncalves, and Ethan Chaplin, were murdered in their off-campus housing unit in Moscow, Idaho, on Sunday, November 13. The police are yet to determine a suspect or arrest a person of interest and have not obtained the murder weapon, in this case, a knife. As the case remains ambiguous with no concrete leads, the police in Idaho have released a map showing the movement of the four students on the night they were murdered.

The map shared by the Moscow Police Department shows that all four victims were back in the house merely two hours before the gruesome murders that has shocked the college town. The information puts the scattered timeline of that night in proper perspective. Goncalves and Mogen, friends since 6th grade, were seen on video at the "Grub Truck" food vendor at around 1.40 am before they booked an Uber to reach at the Idaho party house at 1.45 am. ABC reports that the man seen in the Grub Truck surveillance video with the two victims was involved in the crime.

By the time the four victims reached the property, their two roommates, Dylan Mortensen and Bethany Funke, were already present and were in the house at the time of the murders, but were not harmed. However, cops have yet to arrest anyone in relation to the murder. Coroner Latah County Coroner Cathy Mabbutt told NewsNation's Banfield, "The fatal [wounds] were to the chest or upper body area. It was a pretty large knife. It's hard to call them puncture wounds because it was a large knife. It has to be somebody that's pretty angry in order to stab four people to death." Mabbutt explained that no sexual assault was involved in the attack.
