MOSCOW, IDAHO: The police chief of Moscow, Idaho, has ruled out the prospect that the murders of four University of Idaho students on November 13 would go cold and predicted a successful conclusion. According to Fox News, Moscow Police Department Chief James Fry while talking to Moscow-Pullman Daily News on Thursday also dismissed a few rumors about the case. More than two weeks after the four students - Ethan Chapin, 20, Xana Kernodle, 20, Madison Mogen, 21, and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, were viciously killed at their off-campus King Road home, police are yet to hone in on a suspect.
Chief Fry said, "I'm not even going to speculate on that, number one, because that's not even in my mind," when asked if the incident will turn into a cold case. "We're going to solve this. We're going to continue to work until we solve it."

The officer then discussed details about the case and said, "They believed one of the second-floor victims had passed out and was not waking up." "Multiple people" spoke with the 911 dispatcher before police arrived at the home, he said. And "found two victims on the second floor and two victims on the third floor."
Fry stated that minimal information about the case is being made public in order to preserve the integrity of the case, and said, "We're always going to hold stuff back as much as we possibly can because when you're talking about the integrity of the case, you're talking about when this goes to trial, have you tainted jurors?"
Fry added, "There's a way bigger picture here than just people knowing. Because for it to be a fair trial, you have to have people who don't know facts and have already made up their own opinions on them."
Reversing earlier assertions about the still-unsolved deaths, police said on Wednesday, November 30 that it is uncertain whether the students killed in the quadruple homicide last month were really targeted by the killer as previously assumed.
Police reaffirmed their suspicions about the event on Thursday, December 1, but they remain uncertain as to whether the attacker specifically targeted the students or their residence. Even though no suspect has been named or a murder weapon located, the public has been urged to come forward with any information.
