A 28-year-old man has been taken into custody in Monroe County, PA in connection to the murders of four University of Idaho students, reports say.

As reported by NonStopLOCAL KHQ, “Washington State University has [name redacted] listed on its website as a graduate student. Sources told NonStop Local KHQ he graduated Fall 2022. Commencement was on Dec. 10.”

Forty-seven days ago, University of Idaho students: Kaylee Concalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin were murdered inside a residence located near the university campus.

A press conference is expected to be held on Friday by the local Moscow Police Department regarding the case.

Yesterday, the department announced the house where the murders were committed was to be cleaned by professionals. Officials yesterday said they were also looking for the occupants of a damaged Hyundai that was seen near the residence around the time of the killings. A report surfaced last week that the vehicle was seen in Washington State.

The events surrounding the killings have captured that nation’s attention, leading to tens of thousands of tips being submitted to law enforcement. The two surviving roommates, according to authorities, are not implicated in the killings.

Note: To limit notoriety of culprits (alleged or not), and out of respect for the families of the deceased, American1 does not report names of individuals who commit mass-casualty events.
