Well, there’s a break in the quadruple murder case in Idaho. It’s been over three weeks now, and police still do not have a suspect. But that may finally be changing. A new report reveals police are now looking for the driver of a white Hyundai, and believe that this person has some knowledge of the murders. Now, I don’t want to jump the gun, but that sounds like a legit suspect to me. Maybe this case won’t go “cold” after all.
But we don’t want to speak too soon, since the cops are still supposedly at, or very close to square one.
TMZ reported that 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.
We reported recently that the father of one of the victims believes that his daughter Kaylee or her best friend Maddie were the intended targets. He also said that the “manner” of the killings was not the same on all the bodies.
So, clearly, this murder is still a big mystery. Let’s hope they can find the “white car” driver and start getting some real answers because those parents must be so frustrated that they’ve yet to see justice for their murdered kids.
