Video shows mystery man with murdered Idaho students
Police in Idaho have said the murder weapon used to kill four University of Idaho students is believed to be a fixed-blade knife.
Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin were stabbed to death in an off-campus home on Nov. 13.
In the latest update, investigators said they were investigating reports that Goncalves had a stalker.
“Investigators… have retrieved hundreds of pieces of information related to this topic and have not been able to verify or identify a stalker,” the Moscow police said on Facebook.
Authorities will provide an update on the investigation on Wednesday at 1 p.m.
More than a week after the murders, investigators are still baffled by the case, with no arrests made and no suspects identified – leading to growing frustration among families and the community.
Police have also ruled out any connection between the murders and an incident on November 21, when a woman reported a man who was in her vehicle.
More details are expected to be revealed during presser on Wednesday
Moscow Police and other agencies involved in the massive search for a suspect in the University of Idaho murder case will provide their final update today.
A press conference is scheduled for 1 p.m. local time.

At that event, authorities said the two surviving roommates, a man seen on Twitch video that also showed Goncalves and Mogen in a food truck hours before the murders, and a person who drove them home that night, were not considered suspects.
