Eight days after someone fatally stabbed Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle, and Ethan Chapin inside their home close to the school's campus in Moscow, Idaho, police still have no leads, no leads, and no motive.
"Like something out of a movie" is how a next-door neighbor describes the scene of the recent murders of four University of Idaho students.
Some neighbors who were still in town on Monday recalled the night of the murders, which took place some time between 3 and 4 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 13. Most locals have returned home for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Dakota Sparks and Heather Tetwiler, a couple, also reside not far from the crime scene.
"I left for work around 11:45 (in the morning)," Sparks said. "I never saw or heard anything the night before. I was up until 2 a.m. and never heard anything at all."
According to the police, Goncalves and Mogen returned home at 1:45 a.m. after obtaining food from a food truck and taking a ride from a "private party."
Around that time, Kernodle and her boyfriend Chapin came home from a fraternity party at the Sigma Chi house, which was only 1.5 miles away.
Ten hours after the victims returned home and seven to eight hours after police believe they were killed, a 911 call didn't come in until 11:58 on Sunday morning. One of the surviving roommates' cell phone made the call.
The house, according to the neighbors, was frequently crowded and noisy. It is referred to as a party house by Reagan. Despite this, the victims, according to the neighbors, were polite and engaged in typical college campus social activities.
Moscow, Idaho, which has a population of about 25,000 and is located 80 miles southeast of Spokane, Washington, is home to the University of Idaho. In seven years, there have been no reported homicides in the college town.
