Convicted killer’s wife slams rumors linking him to Idaho murders as new video shows cop interviews from night of murder

The wife of a convicted killer has slammed rumors linking her husband to the Idaho murders as new body camera footage, recorded the night of the killings, has emerged.

Four University of Idaho students were brutally stabbed to death just over a month ago at an off-campus house in Moscow, Idaho.

Online sleuths have been trying to find out who was responsible for the murder of Xana Kernodle and her boyfriend, Ethan Chapin, both 20, and her roommates Kaylee Goncalves and Madison Mogen, both 21.

James Curtis Leonard, who was convicted of manslaughter in 2007, has appeared in online forums and on YouTube as detectives attempt to solve the case themselves.

Leonard, 39, fatally shot a man in Genesse, Idaho, but his wife claims he was innocent of the quadruple homicide in Idaho.

“There are a lot of crazy things going on but my husband had nothing to do with what happened up there,” she told the Daily Mail.

“It’s not related at all. It really pisses me off,” she said.

The couple live in a trailer in Moscow, about a mile from the murder scene.

She added: “People on the internet are trying to attribute the murders to him.”

“I had to quit this social media shit.”

Police arrested Leonard on Tuesday for allegedly beating his wife and harassing her with a knife, according to the outlet.

The outlet said Leonard also allegedly beat up his 15-year-old child.

When cops showed up at their home for a follow-up visit on Friday, Leonard’s wife told them about the harassment her husband was experiencing online.

“I told the police that we were fed up with all the threats, harassment and allegations,” she said.

“Our family has been in danger because of all these false claims made on the internet.”

She told the outlet that she was at home with her husband during the student stabbings.

Cops said Leonard wasn’t connected to the murders.


Police also said three young men, caught on an officer’s body camera the morning of the murder, had nothing to do with the students’ stabbings.

The three men were also university students.

Undercover officers arrested the students after suspecting they had been underage drinking around 2:50 a.m. on November 13.

The students were walking near the Sigma Chi fraternity – the house where Kernodle and Chapin were for a party hours before.

About a tenth of a mile from the police stop, the four stabbing victims were attacked between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. that day.

“Investigators working on the ongoing homicide case are aware of the footage, they have reviewed it and all details associated with it and have determined that they are unrelated,” Moscow police said. .

According to a police report, the students were arrested after they were seen rocking from side to side – one of them fell while crossing the street.

Cops said it was an alcohol-related offence.

In the video, all three men admitted to being under the age of 21.

They also allegedly told the officer that they each had consumed six to eight beers.


The speculation surrounding James Leonard is just rumor spreading about the murders while the killer is still at large.

On Friday, the Moscow Police Department issued a warning to Internet sleuths.

Cops have warned of “harassment” caused by online speculation about the murders.

The speculation has led to intimidation of people who may or may not be involved in the case, police said.

Moscow cops said: “Investigators have been monitoring online activity related to this ongoing and active case.”

They said investigators “are aware of the large amount of rumors and misinformation being shared as well as harassing and threatening behavior towards potentially involved parties.”

“Anyone who engages in threats or harassment, whether in person, online or otherwise, should understand that they could face criminal charges,” Moscow police said.

They added: “The Moscow Police Department warns the public not to trust rumors and remains committed to keeping the public informed.

“We urge to rely on official channels for accurate information.”

The police warning comes after Alivea Goncalves, Kaylee’s sister, stood up for her family.

Aliea said her family was under scrutiny online as people everywhere searched for answers to the chilling crime.

In the Reddit thread r/idahomurders, someone reposted Alivea’s statement from a Facebook group discussing the case.

The sister wrote, “We don’t owe you our workplaces, or our social updates.”

“Myself, my brother and my dad never really used social media before.

“We are determined to continue speaking on behalf of Kaylee and Maddie as they can no longer and no arrests have been made.
