Police seek occupants of Hyundai who may have ‘critical information’ in Idaho student slaying

Idaho police said Wednesday they are looking for the occupants of a white Hyundai Elantra.

Moscow police said the car, believed to be a 2011-2013 model year, was seen near the off-campus home of the slain students on November 13 before the victims were found dead.

Police said they did not know the car’s license plate number.

“Tips and leads” led authorities to search for the driver and any passengers, police said in a statement Wednesday. asking the people for help.

“Investigators believe the occupants of this vehicle may have important information to share in this case,” the post said.

It’s unclear whether anyone inside the car played a role in the killing of the University of Idaho students, or whether they may have witnessed anything that could help police identify a suspect, investigators said.

Authorities have not identified a suspect for more than three weeks after Kayleigh Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Hana Kernodle, 20, and Kernodle’s 20-year-old boyfriend, Ethan Chapin, were found stabbed to death in their off-campus home.
