The release adds, “Whether you believe it is significant or not, your information might be one of the puzzle pieces that help solve these murders. Digital submission of tips and leads will not be publicly disclosed due to our ongoing commitment to keep information private and details may be pertinent to the ongoing criminal investigation.”
The MPD shared the progress on the leads, including a 2011-2013 white Hyundai Elantra that could have been at the scene on the night of the murders. “Progress continues to locate the white 2011-2013 Hyundai Elantra believed to be in the immediate area of the King Road residence during the early morning hours of November 13th. Investigators believe the occupant(s) may have critical information to share regarding this case and have identified over 22,000 vehicles,” stated the press release.
The MPD further requested the public to share any information they have in relation to the vehicle, saying, “If you know of, or own, a vehicle matching this description, or know of anyone who may have been driving this specific vehicle on the days preceding or the day of the murders, please forward that information to the Tip Line.”
The MPD also mentioned Professor Rebecca Scofield, who sued TikTok user Ashley Guillard for linking her to the murder. "At this time in the investigation, detectives do not believe the female associate professor and chair of the history department at the University of Idaho suing a TikTok user for defamation is involved in this crime. The Moscow Police Department will not provide a statement about the ongoing civil process," said the release.
The MPD urged citizens to refer the official releases to keep themselves updated of the progress and have patience during this difficult time.
