Moscow police say an ‘army of analysts’ are actively sifting through clues in the University of Idaho murder investigation
Police said they have “an army of analysts” combing through information received in connection with the investigation into the murders of four University of Idaho students last month.
In a press release on Monday, the Moscow Police Department said it was continuing to investigate the brutal stabbings of Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin inside their rental home. off campus on November 13.
“We literally have an army of analysts sorting through videos that have been submitted to the FBI website,” said Moscow Police Department Captain Roger Lanier. “We tried to use these videos to gather new information. There are hours and hours of video.
The remarks come the same day of a Fox News Digital report that Kaylee Goncalves’ father, Steve Goncalves, called Moscow police officers “cowards” for their handling of the homicide investigation, which entered its fifth week on Sunday with no named suspects.
“We have a lot of information. We specifically keep this information secure,” Lanier added. “We are not releasing details because we don’t want to jeopardize the investigation. We owe it to the families and we owe it to the victims.”
“We want more than just an arrest. We want condemnation.
Mr Goncalves told Fox that the victims had “large open gashes” caused by what he described as “a powerful weapon”.
The grieving father said the nature of the brutal stabbing must have been the work of a ‘sadistic man’ as he criticized law enforcement for not releasing more information to the public given that the mass murderer is still at large.
“They are just cowards. There are girls walking down the street right now who deserve to know. They should be careful of a sadistic man,” he said.
Mr Goncalves’ comments come amid growing tensions between law enforcement and his family. He has repeatedly criticized police for keeping quiet about the investigation and recently accused officers handling the case of being “inexperienced” and making several mistakes early in the investigation.
In what appeared to be the strongest lead yet, Moscow police announced last Wednesday that they were seeking to speak to the occupant or occupants of a white 2011-2013 Hyundai Elantra, which was seen near from the King Road house in the early hours of November 13.
Police are urging the public to come forward with any information, revealing it could be the ‘missing piece of the puzzle’.
Moscow police have been so inundated with information about the vehicle that calls are being directed to a nationwide FBI tip line. On Saturday, police said they were still looking to speak to the occupants and the license plate remained unknown.
