Four College Kids Were Brutally Murdered In Idaho But There's No Attack Angle for the Democrat Party So Their Deaths Don't Matter

On November 13, between 3am and 4am, a killer crept into a house and butchered four people with a knife on the campus of the University of Idaho. They victims are not members of Democrat Grievance Group nor was the weapon used a Hate Weapon like a gun so the Corporate Propaganda Press has decided that these murders are Non-Useful.

Oh, also: The murders did not happen in NY, LA, or DC. Just some Flyover Country corpses. No big deal.

The killer is still unknown and at large.

The four victims are Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and the only male, Ethan Chapin, 20.

Strangely, there were two other housemates downstairs who did not wake during the murders, and also -- though this is not confirmed -- a dog in the house who did not stir.

The four murdered students were found on the second and third floor of their home, but the two roommates living on the ground floor -- Bethany Funke and Dylan Mortensen -- were spared. It's unclear why the two roommates were not killed and if they slept through the attacks.

Funke and Mortensen had also been out that night and arrived home just after 1 a.m. the morning of the murder. Neither has spoken publicly about the murders, but showed off matching tattoos to commemorate their fallen friends.

It has also emerged that murdered roommate Kaylee Goncalves' dog, Murphy, was at the house when police responded around midday.

However, authorities have not confirmed if they believe the dog was in the house at the time of the murders.

...

Authorities do not know who is responsible for the killings, but they have ruled out a slew of suspects, including: Goncalves' ex-boyfriend DeCoeur; the man seen with Goncalves and Mogen at the food truck; the person who drove the two girls home; the surviving two roommates, Mortensen and Funke; the victims themselves, as there is no evidence of a murder-suicide; and the friends summoned to the house by the surviving roommates the morning of Nov. 13.

Rumors circulated that Goncalves had said she had a stalker, but police have been unable to substantiate the claims.

Famed former FBI profiler Jim Clemente told The Post he believes the suspect is a "younger" man and a first-time killer who knew at least one of the victims.

"This is an extremely risky crime for the offender -- unless he knows one or more of the victims, or he's been stalking one of them," he said. "Going into an occupied dwelling with six young adults, any of whom could have a knife or a gun or a cellphone to call the police is extremely risky unless you know the circumstances inside."

The police seem to have nothing to go on, no witness reports, no forensics. Which is leading the media and general public to just start speculating and accusing baselessly.

A third-year law student is being accused of having something to do with the murder, based, it seems, only on him being tagged as being "socially awkward" in televised man-on-the-street media interviews.

Kaylee Goncalves' father has not yet held a funeral or commemoration service for his slain daughter, just out of disgust that the killer might show up.

"My wife's biggest fear, part of the reason we didn't have a funeral, is because she couldn't be guaranteed that that monster was going to not be there," he told ABC News.

He insisted that he still supports and trusts the law enforcement officers who are working the case, despite a lack of results so far and the killer still on the loose.

"I have to assume and hope that this is all part of their plan and ... they've got this all figured out," he told the news network.

That's a really good reason to have a funeral. I wonder if the cops are telling him to hold off on the funeral and make a big deal about not wanting the killer there to make the killer feel like he has to attend.

He says the weapon used -- which I guess is unspecified as to type -- is a "brutal weapon" which left large wounds in its victims. Correction: Oschisms points out the weapon has been ID'd as a Ka-Bar knife. He says that the NY Post -- great conservative paper! -- called the knife an "assault knife" already.

But Mr Goncalves says that his daughter and the other victims died quickly in the attack, which was carried out using a "brutal weapon", that has left the university town on edge.

"Nobody suffered and nobody felt like that kind of pain," added Mr Goncalves.

"The detective said this weapon is probably something (the killer) paid money for and something that they're proud of," he said.

The site of the crime. I assume the rear balcony deck has stairs going to the ground, which allowed the killer to enter the second floor without going through the first floor.

Update: Gref and Long Running Fool point out that there aren't stairs in the back -- because the ground level in the back of the property is at the height of the second level. What I thought was the "second story" is actually the third story.

Pictures and floorplans at the Daily Mail make this more obvious.

The front of the building is built to a lower level to meet the street, but the ground slopes up in the back to climb to the second story.


Horrifying stuff.

But who cares? There's no way to squeeze a point of Democrat political support out of it!

Note: Commenters said that there was a lot of forensic evidence being processed.

Okay, but that kind of evidence does not provide leads, unless you're already In The System. If you've got a clean record, police may pull your prints at a murder site, but they won't find you when they search your prints on VICAP or whatever it's called. If they had something that could provide that kind of lead, we'd probably already know.

The stuff they're getting is confirmatory stuff, stuff you can use to prove the suspect is guilty only after you've identified the suspect. That is, only once you've found a suspect and printed him can you compare his prints to the prints you found in the house.

I think it's pretty clear that, for now, the police have almost nothing.

That's not intended to be an insult. Sometimes a killer just leaves nothing much behind. Sometimes it's not even because he's careful or clever; he just doesn't bleed and leave DNA behind. He gets lucky.

And if he hasn't previously been arrested and fingerprinted, he can leave his prints all over the place and that won't help you find him. They'll help you convict him after you find him, but they won't help you find him in the first place.
