“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.
At this time, two other spouses of the house were sleeping inside the house and they left undisturbed. They are listed as suspects.
“At this time, no suspect has been identified and only verified information that does not hinder the investigation will be made public,” Moscow police said on Wednesday.
The FBI and Idaho State Police are assisting the local police department in the investigation.
On Wednesday, state police officers were seen by The Post removing belongings from the slain students — a sign that forensics teams may have collected evidence from inside the home.
A few days ago, investigators promised not to stop until they find the killer or killers of the students, as the parents of the victims are increasingly worried.
Police Chief James Fry was teary-eyed in an interview Monday as he said law enforcement was still combing through the evidence.
“This work is not cold,” Fry told Fox News. “We have tips. We have detectives interviewing people every day. We are still reviewing the evidence. We’re still looking at all aspects of that.”
However, the parents of at least one of the victims have run out of patience as they wait for answers about who took their daughter’s life.
Goncalves’ father is hiring a lawyer to pressure investigators for answers and also plans to hire a private investigator.
