On Monday night, the restaurant shared another post, where they thanked UOI staff for showing support and sharing the resources. “Thank you to the university of Idaho staff who came by to help support our Mad Greek family as we navigate these difficult times.

However, talking about the investigation into the brutal deaths, there yet has been no arrest, and authorities have not publicly identified a suspect. The Moscow police even admitted in an email to The Daily Beast that "information is still limited in this inquiry."
