At a press conference on Sunday, November 20, Moscow Police Department Chief James Fry, stated that there were other people present in the house when the 911 distress call was made as one of the surviving roommates summoned more friends when one of the friends was unresponsive. Police did not give the name of the surviving roommate. According to Moscow police on social media, the emergency call was placed around 11.58 a.m. requesting help for an unconscious person, and "multiple people talked with the 911 dispatcher before a Moscow Police officer arrived at the location." The call came from the house itself. After a week of finding the bodies, police still have no suspect.

After a week into the investigation, the police received and investigated 640 tips and conducted 90 interviews but this has led nowhere as the case remains ambiguous. During the conference, Fry said, "There was other friends that had arrived at the location," as reported by Daily Mail. Moscow Police Captain Roger Lanier said, "Some of the victims had defensive wounds and each victim was stabbed multiple times." All four victims were found with deep stabbing wounds and were likely attacked in their sleep. Coroner Cathy Mabbutt has previously shared that "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," explaining that the attack was rather personal.

All the fourth victims were back at the King Road property by 1.45 am and were murdered at around 3 am in their sleep. As the investigation comes to a standstill with no possible leads to any angle, Lanier told the room, "Everyone investigator involved will continue to put all of their resources into continuing this investigation. We do appreciate the community's support and understand how stressful it is. We will continue to work through this."
