COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho — A vigil is planned in Coeur d’Alene on Wednesday night to remember the four University of Idaho students killed inside a home near campus.
Madison Mogen, Kaylee Goncalves, Xana Kernodle, and Ethan Chapin were found dead on Sunday in what police have called an isolated and targeted attack.
Madison, Kaylee, and Xana were all from north Idaho, while Ethan was from western Washington.
The vigil on Wednesday night will be held at Independence Point at 5:00 p.m., according to posts shared on social media.
The event, called ‘Shining a light for Maddie, Kaylee, Xana, and Ethan,’ will be “a time to remember, honor, and cherish the lives of these four beautiful souls.”
Candles will be provided at the vigil.
The University of Idaho will hold another vigil for the students on Wednesday, Nov. 30. The candlelight vigil was originally scheduled for Wednesday night but the University of Idaho said it will be postponed until after fall break, as most students are out of town for Thanksgiving break. The vigil will be held on the lawn of the Administration Building but the time it will take place is still yet to be determined.
In addition, on Wednesday, Nov. 16, members of Moscow Police, Idaho State Police and University of Idaho President C. Scott Green held a press conference at the school.
According to Moscow Police Chief James Fry, Ethan and Xana were on their way back home from a campus party during the early morning hours of Nov. 13. Meanwhile, Madison and Kaylee were at a downtown bar.
The group arrived home sometime around 1:45 a.m. After receiving a 911 call around noon, police arrived to find the lifeless bodies of Ethan and Xana. Police say no weapon has been located at this time and investigators are asking anyone with a tip to call the department's tip line at (208) 883-7180.
Police said there is still no sign of a suspect and that the individual responsible is still at large.
