Idaho Murders: The DA was spotted at police headquarters on Thanksgiving as the hunt for the campus killer intensified

EXCLUSIVE: MOSCOW, Idaho Latah County Prosecutor Bill Thompson visited Moscow Police Headquarters Thursday as investigators worked on a shocking quadruple homicide over the Thanksgiving holiday that shocked the quiet community and the rest of the county.

Thompson arrived around 2 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day as detectives from state and local police and FBI agents intensified their search for a suspect in the murders of four University of Idaho students who were stabbed in the middle of the night earlier this month.

Thompson did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.

Idaho State Police communications director Aaron Snell said Thompson’s presence alone does not indicate a break in the case.
