Police To Return Personal Items to Families of U. Idaho Murder Victims

Police To Return Personal Items to Families of U. Idaho Murder Victims

“It’s time for us to give those things back that really mean something to those families and hopefully to help with some of their healing”

This story is so creepy. It’s amazing that they still don’t have a suspect.

CNN reports:

Idaho police are set to return slain university students’ belongings to their families starting today

Police on Wednesday will begin returning to their families some personal belongings of the four University of Idaho students found slain last month, the Moscow department said.

“It’s time for us to give those things back that really mean something to those families and hopefully to help with some of their healing,” Chief James Fry said Tuesday in a brief video statement.

“I’m a dad, I understand the meaning behind some of those things,” Fry said. The items being removed are “no longer needed for the investigation,” the department said.

Three women who lived in the off-campus house in Moscow, as well as a boyfriend of one, were found stabbed to death on November 13, upending a community that hadn’t recorded a murder since 2015. The killed students were Kaylee Goncalves, 21; Madison Mogen, 21; Xana Kernodle, 20; and Kernodle’s boyfriend, Ethan Chapin, 20.

Police have not identified a suspect or found the murder weapon, which they believe to be a knife, though investigators have “a lot of quality leads,” an Idaho State Police spokesperson said Tuesday morning.

Comments

It’s a sad commentary on the state of American law enforcement when what you might see as such a common-sense action actually rates a headline. But it does. You’d be amazed at all the stuff police routinely keep and NEVER give back, especially to suspects who are exonerated. They’re like TSA, but they deliver their confiscations.
