MPD detectives are aware of a sixth person listed on the lease at the King Road residence. However, they do not believe that person was home during the attack.

MOSCOW, Idaho — Moscow police have provided new details in the investigation of four murdered University of Idaho students on Nov. 13, 2022.

In their latest update, Moscow police revealed a sixth person is listed on the lease at the King Road home where the four students were killed. However, they do not believe this person was at the house at the time. Detectives do not believe they are connected to the murders. 

Moscow Police also released the following information:

  • Detectives are aware of a sixth person listed on the lease at the residence. They have spoken to this individual and confirmed they moved out prior to the start of the school year and was not present at the time of the incident. Detectives do not believe this person has any involvement in the murders. 
  • There has been extensive media interest regarding an incident at Taylor Avenue and Band Field on November 13, 2022, at 3:01 a.m. This incident was an alcohol offense which was addressed by the on-scene officer. This call is not related to the murder investigations. For further details regarding this incident, a Moscow Police Department Public Records Request can be submitted referencing incident number 22-MO9896. 
  • We remain consistent in our belief that this was a targeted attack, but investigators have not concluded if the target was the residence or if it was the occupants.

On Saturday, Dec. 3, Moscow Police gave an update on the investigation and said in a statement that detectives had collected 2,645 emails through the tip line and received more than 2,770 calls on their tip line. Police also said in the statement that the FBI has received over 1,084 digital media submissions through the FBI link.

In a release sent on Wednesday evening, Moscow police stated that the Latah County Prosecutor's identification of the case as a targeted attack was a miscommunication. Moscow police say detectives do not currently know if any of the occupants of the house on King Road were specifically targeted, but they are continuing to investigate.    

Police said they will continue to release information that does not hinder the ongoing investigation into the murders. At this time, there is still no suspect.
