Bryan Kohberger Murders
The November 13 murders of the four students, Madison Mogan, Kaylee Goncalves, Xana Kernodle, and Ethan Chapin, left their Moscow, Idaho community in shock and garnered nationwide attention.
Police say the four were stabbed to death in an off-campus house rented by the three students in the middle of the night, some with injuries that suggest they fought off their attacker. Research up to this point has been largely empty. Two roommates on the first floor who police say slept through the attack have since been ruled out as suspects.
