Authorities from Scranton, Pennsylvania, have arrested a suspect for the murders of four University of Idaho students on November 13. The suspect, who has not been identified, is a man in his 20s. He appeared before the court this morning; however, the official details have yet to be made public.
Fox News Digital broke the report:
“A man in his mid-20s was taken into custody by local police and the FBI at 3 a.m. in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the law enforcement source said.
“The suspect is a college student but does not attend the University of Idaho, the source added. He appeared in court this morning.”
The murders of the four students—Ethan Chapin, 20; Xana Kernodle, 20; Kaylee Goncalves, 21; and Madison Mogen, 21—have shaken the college town of Moscow, Idaho, with numerous online detectives trying to unravel the mystery and the local police department under pressure to resolve the case. The slayings have been widely reported. The four students were believed to have been stabbed to death in their sleep overnight in their home off campus, with two other roommates sleeping in separate areas of the house remaining unharmed and unaware of the grisly attack.
The Moscow Police Department held a press conference on December 30.
