Four Idaho College Students Killed in ‘Targeted Attack’


Four University of Idaho students were killed in “an isolated, targeted attack” with an “edged weapon” like a knife, police revealed on Tuesday.

The students, who were found dead on Sunday in a house near campus, were identified by the Moscow, Idaho, police as: Ethan Chapin, 20, of Conway, Washington; Madison Mogen, 21, of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; Xana Kernodle, 20, of Avondale, Arizona; and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, of Rathdrum, Idaho.

Moscow police Capt. Anthony Dahlinger told the Idaho state man that all four students are considered victims, not suspects.

“We certainly have a crime here, so we are looking for a suspect,” he told the newspaper.

No one is in custody but police said they believe there’s “no imminent threat to the community.”
