CrimeOnline’s Nancy Grace says it’s “significant” that additional information has been obtained concerning a speeding white car seen near the University of Idaho quadruple murders crime scene.
Moscow police have been looking for the driver of a white Hyundai Elantra since last week, after it was spotted on security footage near the crime scene where when Madison Mogen, 21; Kaylee, 21; Ethan Chapin, 20; and Xana Kernodle, 20, were found stabbed to death in their off-campus rental off King Street.
As CrimeOnline reported, an overnight assistant manager at a Moscow gas station told Fox News Digital she had been scouring over security footage for days and hours since the incident. She was reviewing the footage during her night shift when she came across a white car that sped by on the night of the stabbings.
She added that the car drove by “real quick” at around 3:45 a.m., which is important information for the investigation, Grace told Fox News Digital.
“That gas station is about 1.2 miles from the murder scene…it’s 3:45 in the morning, and the car is speeding. Who’s out at 3:45 a.m. speeding?” Grace said. “And…this is significant, very significant: in a town with less than 30,000 people, the driver has not come forward. Why? They know we are looking for them.”

Police ask anyone who owns or knows of someone who owns a white Elantra — a 2011-2013 model — to send that information to the tip line at 208-883-7180, email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or upload digital media at fbi.gov/moscowidaho.
Police spokeswoman, Robbie Johnson, told Fox News Digital that investigators are still seeking public tips. Still, she couldn’t immediately reveal whether police matched the Elantra to anything seen on the gas station’s footage.
“If you saw anything that night that looks strange…anything you have to report, even if you don’t think it’s anything, we’re still encouraging people to send that in,” she said.
“When we get that information, even it’s small, sometimes it can piece together the timeline, put those puzzle pieces together, and we get a greater, bigger picture of what was going on.”
