Police may be looking for more than one suspect in Idaho college slayings, prosecutor says
With no one apprehended in the brutal slayings of four University of Idaho students in an off-campus home, it "certainly is possible" there may be more than one suspect, a local prosecutor said Thursday.
MOSCOW, Idaho — The four University of Idaho students who were killed Sunday morning were likely attacked with a large knife, Latah County Coroner Cathy Mabbutt said.
“It would have had to have been ... not a pocket knife," she said. "It would have been a bigger knife.”
Autopsies for Madison Mogen, 21, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20 and Ethan Chapin, 20, were completed Wednesday, and the initial findings indicate they died sometime after 2 a.m. from multiple stab wounds, Mabbutt said.
Complete autopsy results will not be available for another four to six weeks pending toxicology.
Mabbutt said their wounds "were pretty extensive."
