Latest details in slain Idaho student deaths, but police are looking for more


  • Authorities on the lookout for more leads in fatal stabbing of Idaho college students.
  • Two other roommates unharmed may very well be ‘key’ to investigation, authorities say.
  • Victim’s father said his daughter likely fought with killer during stabbing: ‘She’s a tricky kid.’

The murder investigation into 4 University of Idaho students believed to have been stabbed to death while sleeping of their beds has left residents rattled and authorities attempting to unravel a mystery that is getting increasing attention across the country.

Sunday’s crime has reverberated through the college town of Moscow, a city of about 26,000 people near the Idaho-Washington State border. Moscow hasn’t had a murder in about five years. 

The victims were stabbed to death of their beds and certain were asleep, Latah County Coroner Cathy Mabbutt told NewsNation. Mabbutt would later tell CNN that she saw “plenty of blood on the wall” when she arrived on the scene.

“It must be someone pretty offended as a way to stab 4 people to death,” Mabbutt told the cable news channel. The victims were stabbed within the chest and upper body, she said.
