Police to start removing victims' belongings from house
MOSCOW, Idaho -- As police in Moscow, Idaho, continue their search for the suspect who killed four University of Idaho students, investigators are asking for the public's help locating a vehicle of interest.
Moscow police announced Wednesday that they are looking for the occupants of a 2011 to 2013 Hyundai Elantra. They said they are interested in talking to those occupants and believe they may have critical information to share regarding this case, but the license plate is still unknown.
The vehicle is believed to have been in the area of the residence where the four students were killed during the early moming hours of November 12
All this comes as police begin removing some of the victims' personal belongings from the house where the gruesome crimes unfolded, ABC News reported.
Belongings "no longer needed for the investigation" will begin to be collected Wednesday morning to get returned to the families, who have asked for some of the items, police said Tuesday.
"It's time for us to get those things back that really mean something to those families, and hopefully help with some of their healing," Moscow Police Chief James Fry said.
It's been nearly one month since roommates Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen and Xana Kernodle, as well as Kernodle's boyfriend Ethan Chapin, were stabbed to death.
Police said, at this time, no suspect has been identified and only vetted information that does not hinder the investigation will be released to the public.
Two surviving roommates -- who police said are not suspects -- were home at the time and likely slept through the attacks, according to authorities. They were on the ground floor while the four victims were on the second and third floors.
Police added Tuesday that "the house remains an active crime scene" and said "progress continues to be made in the investigation."
