University of Idaho murders: police can't say if survivors are witnesses or suspects

  University of Idaho murders: police can't say if survivors are witnesses or suspects Moscow, Idaho, police haven't ruled out as suspects the two roommates who were home when four Idaho college students were slaughtered, an official told Fox News Digital. Your browser does not support this video "These are people who may have seen the crime but on the flip side may have committed the crime," said Aaron Snell, the communication director for the Idaho State Police. "We don’t know if they are witnesses, victims or suspects, so until we do a thorough investigation, naming them would be inappropriate." Snell added that the roommates had been "fully cooperative.

Police in Moscow, Idaho, are still searching for an unknown killer more than one week after four University of Idaho students were mysteriously stabbed to death in a house near campus.

Here's how the crimes unfolded:

Saturday, Nov. 12

The four slain students were Ethan Chapin, 20, of Conway, Washington; Madison Mogen, 21, of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho; Xana Kernodle, 20, of Avondale, Arizona; and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, of Rathdrum, Idaho.

On the night of Saturday, Nov. 12, Goncalves and Mogen -- lifelong best friends -- went out to the Corner Club bar in downtown Moscow from 10 p.m. and 1:30 a.m., according to Moscow police.
