FIRST ON FOX Blood was seen seeping out of the house where four University of Idaho students were murdered. This was in response to a threat that had been made on the campus.
Fox News Digital received grisly new photos Wednesday showing bloody evidence from the crime scene. They showed blood running down the exterior wall of the house at the back.
An officer stated, “It was a very bloody scene inside.”
Campus security sent a “Vandal Alert”, a notification to students and staff with the subject “Threat With Knife” in September.
According to the alert, “The Moscow Police Department received information that a group was walking between the Steam Plant Parking Lot (Lot #14)and the Student Recreation Center at Paradise Path. They were being threatened by someone with a knife.”
The notification was shared by Fox News Digital by a concerned parent of a University of Idaho student.
The notification stated that “No one was hurt in the incident, however campus community members should be cautious.”
The suspect was described by police as a White male aged between 18 and 22 wearing black clothing and a black baseball hat and riding a mountainbike.
Moscow Police Department declined comment to discuss the incident, including whether the suspect was captured or if it might be related to the Nov. 13 quadruple murders occurred within one mile.
Capt. Anthony Dahlinger spoke to Fox News Digital. The spokesperson for the university did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Police said Tuesday they hadn’t recovered the murder weapon, but believed it to be a knife. They called the grisly killings an “isolated and targeted attack”. The police released said that there was no imminent threat to the community.
Police responded to a call about an unconscious person in a King Road rented house near the university’s fraternity row. The bodies of the students were discovered Sunday morning.
Ethan Chapin (20 years old), Conway, Washington; Madison Mogen (21 years old), Coeur d’Alene Idaho; Xana Kernodle (20 year-old) Avondale Arizona; Kaylee Goncalves (21 year-old) Rathdrum Idaho.
Locals and campus residents are now on edge due to the shocking murders.
Although police have not spoken out, they have stated that the suspect is still at large. Moscow Mayor Art Bettge previously described the murders as a “crime de passion.”
Marc Risen, a father of a student, and a retired officer in the police force, stated that the University of Idaho must increase security.
He said, “Telling parents that there is no threat does not help.” “Hiring off-duty police is a fast way to get boots and guns where you need them; protecting students until the suspect’s arrest.”
