Idaho murders: Police narrow in on the timeline of two victims who went into a frat house
Moscow, Idaho, police said in an interview Tuesday they "don't have a lot of information" on the movements of Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin before they were killed.

According to a report, Moscow police are looking for more information about students Xana and Ethan Chapin before they were assassinated at a nearby rental house.

According to Aaron Snell, Idaho State Police spokesperson Aaron Snell, the timeline of Chapin & Kernodle (both 20), “seems like one of those larger areas that we don’t have a lot information in.”

“So, it would be crucial to find out what they did that evening, who they contacted and if they took any route home.

The couple were at Chapin’s frathouse, Sigma Chi, between 9 a.m. and 1:45 p.m. before returning to Kernodle’s home Nov. 13, police previously stated.

Chapin, Kernodle and Madison Mogen (21), and Kaylee Goncalves (21), were brutally stabbed to death that morning between 3 and 4 a.m.

NewsNation reported that Kaylee Goncalves’ injuries had been more severe than the other victims. They were more brutal, citing a source.

Snell stated that police had not disclosed this information to Goncalves’ families, but they also didn’t refute it.

Fox News Digital’s Steve Goncalves stated that the “means to damage” his daughter and Mogen were different even though they were in the same room at the time. He didn’t go into detail.

Police have entered their fourth week of the investigation and say they don’t know any suspects and they haven’t found the “fixed blade knife” that they believe to be the murder weapon.

Police also asked questions about Murphy the dog of Goncalves, who was found at the house after the murders.


Snell stated to ABC News that it was not clear if the dog was present at the house during the murders. “What we know is that the dog was present when officers arrived.” It did not have any evidence.
