Re: UPDATE WITHIN: Idaho College Campus

I don't think the report I saw mentioned the breed of dog but someone said the girls had the dog for protection, so I assume it was trained to bark or would bark at intruders. I don't know about the kind of dog, but I am still wondering wny there was no barking....if it had barked, it would have awakened someone....so maybe the dog knew the killer so he didn't bark.....someone who came there a lot, which fits with the theory that the killer is a current student there

Sometimes the timeline for burial is influenced by the family's religious customs. Some religions require burial right away and others wait quite awhile due to wakes, vigils, etc.

I think the killer may be long gone by now...maybe up in Canada like some students have said.

Re: UPDATE WITHIN: Idaho College Campus

I know the public, students and families of the victims want answers. The communication person for the investigation gives out conflicting or vague information but I have to credit the investigators who have been tight lipped. You don't want to give information out that may tip off a POI or threaten the integrity of the investigation. It's hard to tell these parents that they have no new information. I do have confidence that all agencies are meticulous about examining a massive amounts of information & lab results & I think they may have POIs. They have cleared a number of people. The one set of parents are talking to the media & I don't fault them as they've lost their child & are working thru their grief. They just want answers so they have some type of closure & understanding as to why? They need answers but the worst thing that could happen after the death of their daughter would be for the guilty party to go free due to a technicality.

The two whose bedrooms were on the lower level and got home earlier may have had the dog in one of there rooms. With all the coming and going, barking would be common and disregarded. He wouldn't know who had entered, that they were a threat rather than residents.

Re: UPDATE WITHIN: Idaho College Campus

Lawrence Jones had Kaylee's parents on last night. It was revealed that the means of death of his daughter doesn't match her friends. LJ said some were more bloody than others. I found that revelation eye opening. Her parents are thinking of hiring a P.I. The parents are frustrated because each week they wait there is nothing new or it is being withheld.

LJ had other investigators on his show and it was very enlightening. Ted Williams said it takes a long time to go through all the evidence. They have to wait on the crime lab. Hopefully, they do have someone in their sights,; only time will tell.

Re: UPDATE WITHIN: Idaho College Campus

Today, the report came out that the dog was in the bedroom on the first floor. The person they met in a food place was not involved. So in essence, no really important update. Sad that this case is going downhill fast.

They had taken the dog to check him for any DNA, I guess someone's blood, but they found nothing. The dog was taken by the humane society and then given to one of the victims relatives. I saw a pic of him with one of the victims...he has a teddybear face and very cute. Didn't look very big.
The so-called update didn't really mention anything new. I can see why the families and other students are so frustrated and upset. I am not sure what I would do if I had a student attending that school. I know some of the professors are giving students an option for virtual classroom but they said it isn't possible for some courses. I can see why some of the evidence or other info may be withheld from. The parents of they are young to give interviews and reveal info from the police that they probably should not. There is no way I would never be able or willing to give an interview in the midst of this tragedy if my child was one of the victims. I guess everyone handles grief in their own way, but I hope nothing compromises the investigation. One expert today said that with so little info from law enforcement, it is a good sign.

I keep reading and hearing about this case and feel sorry for the parents. One crime expert interviewed said he thinks the case has already grown cold. He said the police should have interviewed 1,000 not 150. They should have gone door to door.The parents are very angry and frustrated. They are getting little to no information from the police. The police went inside the house to get the victims' belongings. Unless they are being very secretive, they are going nowhere fast with this case. My heart breaks for their families. 

 

As of Saturday, the Moscow PD personnel dedicated to the case fell to 11 six detectives- up by two from the four who were previously assigned and four support staff.

 

Meanwhile, the number of FBI personnel assigned increased to 46 investigators working in Moscow and elsewhere in the country, and two agents from the BAU.

 

Idaho State Police's staffing decreased in the number of investigators working the case from 20 to 13.  The number of uniformed troopers remained the same, while the mobile crime scene unit was eliminated.  ISP forensic service investigators remain on the case and a communications team has been deployed.

 

On Wednesday, a former FBI Assistant Director told Fox the investigation is at a sensitive stage.

 

It's on the verge of being a cold case in the sense that resources and the FBI and the State Police start to peel off.

 

Late Wednesday, police revealed that detectives are hoping to speak with anyone who was inside a white , 2011 to 2013 Hyundai Electra that was spotted near the crime scene in the ear!y morning hours of Nov 13 - the day of the murders.

 

Hoping for the best for all parents in a resolution.

Re: UPDATE WITHIN: Idaho College Campus

This case is terrifying and has been really bothering me. The fact that this town hasn't had much crime at all means the police are probably inexperienced in dealing with these cases, which isn't a good sign. I think the killer may be long gone. I hope we are not dealing with a serial killer. I feel so bad for their families.

@elated   I watch Lawrence Jones and especially his specials on this tragedy.

 

I took notice of Kaylee's father saying the wounds on his daughter do not match.

 

With all the speculation as to why all four could be killed without anyone knowing, there is a theory (not proven yet but possible) that throats were slit first; that would account for a victim not crying out.

 

Sorry for a graphic mind image but it could be why there had been nothing heard or noticed.
