Progress in Quadruple Murder of University of Idaho Students

I think the police know or have a really good idea who killed those 4 students at the University of Idaho. Police said the four students, who were found stabbed multiple times, were “sleeping” just before they were attacked. Police also said some of the victims had “defensive” wounds, meaning they were awake and aware of what was happening and we are trying to deal with the killer. But the police are reluctant to say anything about who the suspect might be.

What we do know is that detectives have interviewed 38 people who may have had some information about the murders. We also know that the police took items from three different dumpsters at the location of the house. Thanks to the family, we also know that the killer was “sloppy” and left plenty of clues.

So I think they know who he is and are gathering evidence right now.

And speaking of which, the “Rambo-style” knife used in the murder is the key to the whole thing, and it also led to a breakthrough. Cops are now targeting the ROTC group at the university for using these types of knives.

Police still believe it was a “personal” attack.

Radar Online reports that police investigating the gruesome quadruple murder of four University of Idaho students who were brutally murdered on Nov. 13 are investigating a possible connection to the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

The Reserve Officers’ Training Corps – or ROTC – is a college program offered to students on college campuses that prepares young adults to become officers in the United States Military.

Investigators believe the weapon used in the brutal killing was a combat knife, which may have been sourced for the University of Idaho’s ROTC program, a law enforcement source said.

No murder weapon has been found yet.

“Police believe a Ka-Bar type knife was used in the crimes and they have already ruled out that type of weapon being sold at a local store,” he said.

“It’s a very unique style of blade, about six inches long.”

It looks like the knife used by Sylvester Stallone’s Rambo. The Ka-Bar knife has a blade on one side and a serrated edge on the other.

The combat knife was issued by the US Marine Corps in the 1940s, according to the company’s website.

The knife was later adopted by the Marine Corps, Army, Navy, Coast Guard and Submarine Destroyer Groups.

A police source added, “Obviously, investigators want to know if there are any Ka-Bar knives in the University of Idaho Reserve Officer Training Corps program archives or on display.

The insider said they prove the gun could have been swiped by the killer or killers to commit the crimes.

The University of Idaho’s official website confirms that the school offers coursework through the United States Air Force, Army and Navy ROTC program.

“A knife is a weapon of rage,” retired LAPD detective Mark Fuhrman told Fox News.

All four victims – Ethan Chapin, 20, of Conway, Washington; Madison Mogen, 21, of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; Khana Kernodle, 20, Avondale, Arizona; and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, of Rathdrum, Idaho, were stabbed. They were found dead in a house near the campus.

Police discovered the bodies of the students around noon on November 13 when they responded to a report of unconsciousness in a house a few steps from the college campus.

I think this case will be solved soon and we will learn more about why this person or people killed these 4 innocent young students.

Let’s hope these families deserve swift justice so they can find some semblance of closure.
