It doesn’t matter how many days have passed, Idaho and the Moscow community continue to mourn and feel uneasy at what happened there a little over a week ago.
One of the biggest “dangers” to the investigation, if you will, is the constant proliferation of rumors, speculation, and online discourse. The case is far from resolved and has gripped the nation with concern, fear and scrutiny. However, as Idaho State Police Director Colonel Kedrick Wills shared, the MOST help the public can have through all of this is to simply stop the rumor and only share facts that are coming from the police force.
To improve police communication with the public – which in itself was a hot topic – another press conference was held this afternoon – Wednesday 23 November 2022.
The event opened with Moscow Police Chief Fry stating that while a lot of information is coming in, investigators know there is more to be collected and is urging the public to call with ANY lead, no matter how small.
After taking the podium, Captain Roger Lanier reviewed the same timeline, which has been released multiple times. From this, some new details have been officially announced, but they have already been said in various other interviews this week. He shared that several people spoke to dispatch during the 9-1-1 call — these callers are still not of criminal interest to police.
Idaho State Police Director Kedrick Wills told the media that investigations take time and that there is a method to everything. Among these investigations were:
- Collected 103 pieces of evidence
- Over 4000 photos taken
- Multiple 3D scans of the residence
- Hundreds of hours of forensic manpower have been invested
Wills also shared that Gov. Brad Little has allocated $1 million to the investigation for various expenses.
The press event then turned to a question and answer format – we’ve paraphrased this below as many of these questions are very popular.
What will the police presence be like around campus after the study break?
There will be increased presence and ISP.
Will there be a release of the 9-1-1 call, even a transcript?
Not at this point.
What about reports of Kaylee having a stalker and what led to it?
This has come up in a few interviews but hasn’t been able to be confirmed yet, but they’re not done investigating that yet.
Why not let the public know who was targeted in this “targeted attack”?
The integrity of the investigation must be preserved, and disclosure at this point can jeopardize the investigation.
Can suspects ping WiFi routers in the house?
Everything is examined.
Concerned about the expansion of the time slot?
Yes, time flies, but this time it allows investigators to process the evidence that can give authorities the bigger picture.
Did the suspect go to the first floor where the two survivors were?
The authorities cannot publish this at the moment.
Could this have been a murder-suicide?
The authorities don’t think so.
Can you confirm that the bodies have been returned to their families?
Yes, and one already had a funeral.
Is the BAU working on creating a suspect profile?
We believe this information will be released at the right time
How did the suspect get into the apartment?
This is still part of the investigation and will not be published.
