Cops in Idaho want to speak with whoever was driving or a passenger in a white Hyundai Elantra that may have been in the neighborhood on the night 4 college students were killed.
Moscow PD says they’ve received tips about a vehicle that matches this description — the model year being between 2011 and 2013 — near the crime scene in the early morning hours of November 13. They have not released a license plate number.
Investigators are also unsure how many people may have been inside the car, but in any case, they say they’re seeking them out — as they feel they might have more info.
Cops are not saying whether they suspect the occupant(s) of the vehicle is directly involved in the murders — but it feels like a solid lead after weeks of dead ends, with no one in custody.
As we reported … frustrations have mounted in the community after many conflicting and retracted statements from law enforcement. At first, it was labeled a targeted attack against the victims, then saying it was maybe just the house was targeted … later correcting that too and saying they just didn’t know.
Cops have also ruled out an alleged stalker of one of the victims as a possible lead — and don’t seem to have moved much further beyond square one in terms of answers.
Meanwhile … students have been tentative to return to classes post-Thanksgiving break, with a killer on the loose. Send tips to 208-883-7180 or firstname.lastname@example.org
