Idaho authorities are reportedly probing the movements of two University of Idaho stabbing victims after they made a stop at a frat house before going home.
According to DailyMail, Ethan Chapin and Xana Kernodle visited the Sigma Chi frat house at the University of Idaho the night of the murders, between 9 p.m. and 1:45 a.m.
Chapin and Kernodle, both 20, along with Madison Mogen and Kaylee Goncalves, both 22, were found stabbed to death in the rented off-campus home near the school, off of King Road, on November 13. Police said they were killed sometime between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m.
The president of the Sigma Chi chapter, Reed Ofsthun, reportedly said that the fraternity is fully cooperating as authorities continue the investigation. The Moscow Police Department confirmed that they were looking into Chapin and Kernodle’s movements at the frat house; they visited it just hours before being murdered, ABC News reports.
Idaho State Police spokesman Aaron Snell told ABC News that Chapin’s and Kernodle’s movement and timeline “seems to be one of the larger areas that we don’t have a lot of information in.”
“So, being able to locate what they did that night, and maybe who they contacted, maybe any routes that they took home, that would be important for the investigation,” he added.
Meanwhile, the investigation continues.
According to Moscow police, two of the victims were found on the second floor, and another two were found on the third floor of the house, which is built into a hill off campus. Two roommates who were on the first floor were not attacked by the intruder, and police say they do not believe the surviving roommates had anything to do with the murders.
“We believe someone has information that will add context to the picture investigators are creating of what occurred. … Your information, whether you believe it is significant or not, might be one of the puzzle pieces that help solve these murders,” Moscow police said Monday.
Authorities previously said a sharp-edged knife was used during the attacks.
