'Was the coroner next door?': Internet wonders how Idaho victims were pronounced dead JUST 2 mins after 911 call was made
According to their autopsy report, the four victims were pronounced dead at 12 pm, which was just two minutes after the 911 call was made
MOSCOW, IDAHO: On November 13, 2022, four students of the University of Idaho were found dead in their apartment. Moscow Police Department Officers responded to a call that was made from the house at 11:58 am, hours after the students were murdered, according to their autopsy report. Now what has caught everyone's attention is the time when the four were 'pronounced dead' by the police department.
According to their autopsy report, Madison Mogen, 21, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Ethan Chapin, 20, and Xana Kernodle, 20 were pronounced dead at 12 pm, which was just two minutes after the 911 call was made. This short time of two minutes has left the Internet in shock with many wondering if the "coroner was just next door."
Pointing out the same, one Reddit user said, "I’m curious about the 911 call (11:58) and from the city website of the release of the autopsy results stating “date of pronounced death @12 noon”. Two minutes when it’s still an unconscious person and to pronouncing death? Was the coroner next door? Or is that when the cop showed up? That’s two minutes from the time of the call and when the victims were pronounced dead. Timing seems super quick."
Replying on the same thread, another one wrote, "It doesn't makes sense to me as well. Even if they were somewhere near, it would have at least take around 5 minutes to reach and then around 2-3 minutes to sense the situation and see if all of them are actually dead. These timings aren't actually making much sense here. How can everything happen in two minutes?"
Another Reddit user guessed if the time that has been provided is not accurate and wrote, "I think it’s one of those things that just has to be filled in when filing any sort of report about a death. It’s not like there was an EMT or doctor there to actually “pronounce” time of death like how it’s shown in tv shows and movies. It’s been reported that police showed up first and saw that these kids were clearly deceased so there wasn’t a reason to bring in EMTs to provide life-saving efforts when it would just disrupt the crime scene. I think they’re just using the estimated time of when someone of some sort of authority like a police officer first arrived and realized the situation."
Previously, while talking to News Nation about the case, Latah County Coroner Cathy Mabbutt shared details about the autopsy report. She said, “It was late at night or early in the morning so it seems likely maybe they were sleeping. There were multiple stab wounds on them and most of them had just one that was the lethal stab wound. The fatal ones were to the chest area, the upper body area. It was a pretty large knife so it’s really hard to call them puncture wounds. It has to be somebody that is pretty angry in order to stab four people to death.”
