As police investigate the mysterious murders of four University of Idaho students, an ‘army of analysts’ are combing through videos submitted to the FBI’s website, according to Moscow Police Captain Roger Lanyard.

“These videos are coming from all over town,” Lanier said in a video statement Monday.

“As you can imagine, there are hours and hours and hours of video, so it takes a long time,” he said.

It has been nearly a month since roommates Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen and Xana Kernodle, along with Kernodle’s boyfriend Ethan Chapin, were killed inside the off-campus girls’ house in the early hours of November 13 .

Two surviving housemates – who police say are not suspects – were at home at the time and likely slept during the attacks, authorities said. They were on the ground floor while the four students killed were on the second and third floors.

No suspects have been identified.

Lanier said police “have a lot of information” they choose not to release to the public.

“We are not releasing specific details as we do not want to jeopardize this investigation,” he said. “We owe it to the families and we owe it to the victims. We want more than just an arrest, we want a conviction.”

Police said they were looking to speak to the occupant or occupants of a white 2011-2013 Hyundai Elantra that was in the “immediate area” of the home on the morning of the killings.

“We are looking for this car because we believe, through our investigation, that this car was in the area at the time of the murders,” Lanier said Monday. “The occupants or occupants may have seen something – they may not know they saw something. So we want to talk to them specifically.”

Police are urging anyone with information to download digital media at fbi.gov/moscowidaho or contact the tipline at tipline@ci.moscow.id.us or 208-883-7180.
