The Idaho college student murders: Suspect(s) still at large

On November 13, four University of Idaho students were murdered in Moscow, Idaho. At this time, a suspect or suspects are still at large.

Just before noon on Sunday the 14th, Moscow Police Department received a call regarding an unconscious person. After reporting to the scene, they were met with far more than an unconscious individual.

Moscow police found four deceased university students in a multi-story home. The deceased were later identified as Madison Mogen (21), Xana Kernodle (20), Kaylee Goncalves (21), and Ethan Chapin (20). Mogen, Goncalves, and Kernodle all lived in the home, while Chapin did not. Chapin reportedly dated Kernodle.

Before the murders, authorities say Kernodle and Chapin were attending a party on the university campus and returned to the apartment after 1 a.m. Goncalves and Mogen returned home around the same time after spending time at The Corner Club downtown. Before returning home, Mogen and Gonclaves reportedly stopped at a food truck. (CBS NEWS)

According to the coroner, all of the victims were most likely sleeping at the time of the attacks. All four were stabbed to death.

Police say two other roommates possibly slept through the murders and are currently not considered suspects.

At this time, authorities are sifting through a large amount of information. 113 pieces of physical evidence are included in the collected data, along with thousands of photos and other evidence collected at the crime scene, authorities say.
