The Moscow Police Department has been inundated with tips and leads over the past 24 hours about a white 2011-2013 Hyundai Elantra that was found in the “vicinity area” of the home where four University of Idaho students were killed last month.
Calls to the tip are now routed to an FBI call center that is better equipped to handle the volume of information.
“The Global Call Center has the resources to receive these calls, categorize them and forward them so that investigators can use these tips in their investigation,” the Moscow Police Department said Thursday.
Police first announced Wednesday that they were looking for the vehicle, saying the passenger or passengers may have “critical information” about the murders.
