SANDPOINT, IDAHO: Cara Northington, the mother of University of Idaho victim Xana Kernodle, is speaking out about the case for the first time. It has been more than two weeks since the violent deaths of four University of Idaho students on November 13, authorities are yet to identify any suspects or persons of interest. Xana was among the four students who were brutally stabbed at their off-campus house along with Ethan Chapin, Kaylee Goncalves, and Madison Mogen.
A few days ago, Jeffrey Kernodle, Xana's father, said he was growing frustrated with conjecture around the mysterious murder of his 20-year-old daughter. Recently, Xana's mother, Cara Northington, spoke of his daughter's murder for the first time with News Nation. She revealed that the police have not been helpful and said, "Honestly, no, they haven't said anything. I learned more on the news and TV than they told me." She later added, "There is so much more that can be done that has not been done."

There is currently a void in the timeline indicating Ethan and Xana's whereabouts the night before they were murdered. They were at a fraternity party just a five-minute walk from the house, as per authorities. When News Nation asked regarding the timeline, Northington told "Banfield" that she believed Xana and Ethan went to a pub afterward.
Later she added that she believes the murders were targetted, and said, "If you knew Xana, you knew what a light she was was to everybody she came across. She was such a positive influence on everybody around her … I'm not saying this because I'm her mother and biased. It's just the truth. There's nothing negative you could say about her. She was just such a good soul … No parent should ever go through this. These kids were good kids."
All four victoms received several stab wounds from a large knife, according to autopsy results presented on Thursday, November 24. According to the story, the fatalities were ruled homicides, and the killer is still at large.
Xana was born in 2002 in Sandpoint, Idaho. Her parents were supportive of her eldest daughter Xana's professional decision. According to the victim's father, she had a bright personality, and no one would want her to be stabbed to death. She was courteous to everyone and offered assistance to others without asking for anything in return, her father said.
