It's very likely then, that some people were in the wrong place at the wrong time.  A crime of passion to kill 4 people?  Maybe two (if relationships were the cause), but not all four victims.

It's really strange.  Google Idaho students - and you get Idaho student shooting or Idaho shooting.  But then the articles all say that the mode of death is still unknown (as police haven't released it.)

 

So apparently Google has decided they were shot - without any evidence as yet.

 

Just as the NYT has decided it was a crime of passion.

 

I am so tired of the media making things up.

When events first break, there is often great confusion and hence misinformation in the reporting.  I doubt reporters are making it up, just grasping at any tidbits which might be circulating and don't have time to verify due to deadlines.

Even now, with time passing, this story is reported so oddly it's difficult to figure out what happened.

The mayor said "it was a crime of passion."

 

Murder/suicide was discounted.

@Isobel Archer   I saw those headlines, too,  when the story first broke.

"Shooting" gets attention, especially following the UVA shootings.

@Isobel Archer As did the New York Post. Actually, it was their headline.

Re: UPDATE WITHIN: Idaho College Campus

[ Edited ]

The mayor of a small Idaho town where four college students were found dead said the “senseless” killings could be blamed on "almost any scenario."

 

 

Moscow Mayor Art Bettge said a property crime “gone wrong” or a “crime of passion” were possible explanations in the deaths of University of Idaho students Ethan Chapin, 20; Madison Mogen, 21; Xana Kernodle, 20; and Kaylee Goncalves, 21.

 

The students were discovered dead just before noon Sunday at an off-campus residence when officers responded to a report of an unconscious person, the city has said.

 

The city described them in a statement as homicide victims but did not provide additional details, and no suspect was in custody.

A police spokesman did not respond to requests for comment Monday.

 

Bettge said that without a suspect or knowing whether anything was missing from the home, a motive remains elusive.

 

"Patience is needed to allow an investigation to proceed in meticulous fashion," he said.

 

In a separate statement Monday, Bettge called the students' killings a "tragedy" that "serves as a sobering reminder that senseless acts of violence can occur anywhere, at any time, and we are not immune from such events here in our own community."

 

"Today, we grieve for those who were lost and those they leave behind," he said.

 

Moscow, a rural city of roughly 25,000 people just east of the Washington line, "is, excepting recent events, quiet and crime-free," Bettge said.

In a memo to students Monday, university President Scott Green said he and his wife were "heartbroken."

 

 

Chapin, of Mount Vernon, Washington, was a freshman and a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity majoring in recreation, sport and tourism management, the memo said.

 

Kernodle, of Post Falls, Idaho, was a junior and a member of the Pi Beta Phi sorority majoring in marketing.

 

Mogen, of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, a senior majoring in marketing, was also a member of the Pi Beta Phi sorority.

 

Goncalves, of Rathdrum, Idaho, was a senior and a member of the Alpha Phi sorority majoring in general studies.

 

The relationships among some of the students were not clear. In an Instagram post Saturday, Goncalves included an image of her and several friends, including Mogen, and said: "One lucky girl to be surrounded by these ppl everyday."

 

In an Oct. 29 Instagram post, Kernodle wished Chapin a happy birthday and said life was "so much better with you in it."

New report...

Authorities investigating the deaths of four University of Idaho students at a private home near campus said on Tuesday that they believe the students were killed with a knife or some other blade/edged weapon,  but that no weapon had been recovered and no suspect was yet in custody.

I saw that a few minutes ago.  It is so hard for me to believe that only one person could do this to four young people.  Even with the Tate murders several of Charlie's followers participated.  There is more to this story.  The families of all these killings this week breaks my heart.
