Former Resident of U. Idaho Murder House Says it’s Creaky, Killer Would Have Been Heard

“You can’t walk up any of the stairs or on any of the floors without everybody in the house knowing it.”

The former resident is saying that the killer could not have moved through the house without being heard by others.

Idaho murders: Everybody can hear each others’ footsteps in ‘creaky’ house, former resident says

A University of Idaho graduate who previously lived in the off-campus house where four students were killed is speaking out to ABC News.

“It’s definitely an old, creaky house,” said Cole Alteneder, who graduated in 2022 and lived in the house during his junior year. “You can’t walk up any of the stairs or on any of the floors without everybody in the house knowing it.”

Three of the current residents — roommates Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen and Xana Kernodle — as well as Kernodle’s boyfriend, Ethan Chapin, were all stabbed to death in the house in the early hours of Nov. 13.

No suspects have been identified.

Two other roommates — who police said are not suspects — survived and likely slept through the murders, according to police. The survivors were on the ground floor while the four victims were on the second and third floors.

Alteneder said each of the three floors has two bedrooms and a bathroom.

This is contrary to what I saw another former resident of that house say. Regardless, it is a house full of people. You hear someone walking around and your assumption it is another housemate. But as far as I know the two surviving residents have stated they heard nothing at all. Noisy house, or no noisy house, I believe everyone in the house had also been drinking that night. Senses dulled as a result.

if the killer was already there, NO ONE would have heard he/she enter

Deep asleep who would hear the low noise that even a creaky stair step would create?

Perhaps a well-trained Ninja warrior or a rare evil Shao-lin monk entered and surreptitiously made his or her way wending through the halls and rooms performing the evil, vile deeds.

law enforcement, with good reason, have been sparing with the facts–more likely, the killer was already there when the violence began–“passed out” on the sofa, under the table, in the corner, in the bathroom,etc–partied enough in college to not be alarmed at seeing partiers in such positions– would think nothing of it–especially if they were known/familiar to me–or perhaps the killer was hiding somewhere in the residence

am still curious as to why anyone survived–amped on adrenaline or narcotics,wonder why the perpetrator stopped at four–were they perhaps interrupted?–of course, that would necessitate someone hearing/seeing something and according to the survivors, they saw/heard nothing

unusual indeed

    You have to understand the house is subdivided into separate living areas. The two who lived were on the first floor. Killer entered house at back into second floor. Perhaps killer thought door leading down led to a basement, or killer was targeting someone specific. Who knows.

Ok let’s say the killer was silent. People were murdered one by one. Were they all silent too? Does not make sense.
