MOSCOW, IDAHO: As the manhunt for the suspect responsible for the brutal murders of four University of Idaho students continues, new unproven and arbitrary conspiracy theories are taking rounds on the internet claiming that the butcher may have moved the victims’ bodies to delay discovery. The claims came out after former CIA officer and FBI special agent Tracy Walder appeared on NewsNation Prime where she revealed: "all of the victims were not necessarily in bed when they were attacked and all of the victims were not necessarily on their respective floors, in the rooms that they slept in."

The deceased body of four victims identified as Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle, and Ethan Chapin, were found in their off-campus accommodation on Sunday, November 13. Police have not said which victims were discovered where, or whether the bedroom doors were secured after the killings. Two of the victims were sleeping on the second level and two were on the third.

Citing the report, a Reddit user wrote, "I thought LE already confirmed they were in their beds? Is it possible the attacker moved the victims after the attack to delay discovery?" "To add on, in the first few days the Coroner said they were 'mostly found in bed,' another user wrote while countering the claim. While the third user said, "Yeah definitely take it with a grain of salt. When I hear 'on their respective floors in the rooms that they slept in' could just mean that maybe M & K slept together in one room."



"I could've sworn she said they were all sleeping when attacked, I suppose it's possible some awoke during the attack and relocated as a result. Really horrifying to think about," said the fourth user. "I’m not convinced. I think Kaylee and Maddie were sleeping in Maddie’s bed, but any idea that someone fell asleep on a couch or something doesn’t really make sense, unless it was in a room. Because the roommates would see the bloodbath on the living room couch and be more concerned about that than about someone passing out," another user asserted.




Meanwhile, the officials revealed that the victims were stabbed multiple times between 3 am to 4 am. It was reported that they have forwarded 113 pieces of physical evidence they collected to the Idaho State Police crime lab for processing. They also revealed that they had reviewed over 1,000 tips and interrogated over 150 people but up till now, there have been no arrests made or murder weapons recovered.
