MOSCOW, IDAHO: Authorities have not yet identified any suspects or persons of interest as they enter the second week of their investigation into the brutal deaths of four University of Idaho students on November 13. Xana Kernodle was one of the students, who got brutally stabbed among the others in the murder scene. Recently, Kernodle's father has shared a few details.

Jeffrey Kernodle, Xana's father, has told The Independent that he is growing frustrated with speculation around the mysterious murder of his 20-year-old daughter. He was surprised because she was always alone, but she had told her father about her fight with someone a week before her death. So Jeffrey suspects that the murderer is the person she had mentioned. As a result, the investigators will most likely consult with the person before reaching a conclusion, as reported by Geniuscelebs.

Mr Kernodle further stated that his daughter's injuries demonstrated how hard she fought to fight off the person who murdered her, her boyfriend, and two friends in the horrific incident. He also claimed that the FBI was “not saying anything,” and called the tragedy his “worst nightmare.” “How can you protect some kid? You keep them at home and don’t let him go to college? They’re not gonna stay at home like that,” Mr Kernodle told the outlet. “So, it’s really mind-boggling. It’s just completely unthinkable and it’s the worst nightmare,” he added.

According to autopsy results presented on Thursday, November 24, all four had multiple stab wounds from a big knife. The fatalities were judged homicides, and the killer is still at large five days later, as per the report.

Xana Kernodle, a student of University of Idaho, was born in 2002 to his parents in Sandpoint, Idaho. Her parents were proud of her eldest daughter Xana and encouraged her career choice. The victim's father stated that she had a lively personality and that no one would want her to be stabbed to death. She was polite to everyone and helped others without expecting anything in return. His father and sister have publicly shared the news, but her mother has not, as per reports.

Cathy Mabbutt, Latah County Coroner, acknowledged that some of the victims had defensive wounds from the knife attack, adding that she had seen "nothing, nothing like this" in her nearly two-decade career, the report stated.

There was no evidence of sexual assault on any of the victims, but they all had "quite extensive" wounds, she said, confirming that each victim was stabbed a different number of times and in various places on the body.
