Internet Sleuths Catch ‘Great Lead’ in Background of Bodycam Footage Near Where Idaho Murders Occurred


As Moscow Idaho, police are trying to keep a lid on information about last month’s quadruple murder, internet sleuths are poring over video to offer their assistance, whether the police want it or not.

University of Idaho students Kaylee Goncalves, 21, of Rathdrum, Idaho, Madison Mogen, 21, of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; Xana Kernodle, 20, of Post Falls, Idaho; and Ethan Chapin, 20, of Mount Vernon, Washington, were killed on Nov. 13. No suspects have been named.

One bit of video made public shows figures in the background, which means there may be witnesses. The video was timestamped at 3:12 a.m. Police have estimated the murder took place between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m.

“During the timeframe of the murders, there were people in the general vicinity. Between the people with law enforcement and the people in the background of the body cam footage, that is about half a dozen people. The importance is they may have witnessed something unbeknownst to them,” she said.

On its website, Moscow police indicated in its Tuesday update they would like the speculation taken down a notch.

“One month after the murders took place investigators continue to piece together what happened in the hours leading up to the crime in order to determine who is responsible. This while asking the public to stay focused on the official facts released by the Moscow Police Department. Over the past four weeks, rumors and speculation has led members of the public to provide tips based on rumors rather than official information provided about the case,” the site said.
