MOSCOW, IDAHO (AP) – Ten days after four University of Idaho students were stabbed to death in their rooms, police said on Wednesday they still have not identified a suspect or found a murder weapon, and they continued asking for tips and surveillance video.
Moscow Police Captain Roger Lanier told a news conference his department is putting all of its resources into solving the case and that investigators are prepared to work through the holiday.
Authorities gave no indication that they’re any closer to making an arrest, but they did stress that they continue processing forensic evidence gathered from the home where the students were killed.
Additional surveillance video could be just as helpful for what it doesn’t show as what it does, said Police Chief James Fry.
“We continue moving forward to understand why this occurred in our community,” Fry said.
The killings stunned bucolic Moscow, a college town and agricultural centre that got its first Target store last year. The city, population of 26,000, is surrounded by rolling wheat and bean fields and had not seen a homicide since 2015.
