In this article, you will get all the information regarding Idaho murder: Prosecutor seen at police headquarters on Thanksgiving as hunt for campus killer intensifies

Exclusive: Moscow, Idaho Latah County Prosecuting Attorney Bill Thompson visited Moscow police headquarters Thursday as investigators work through the Thanksgiving holiday on a shocking quadruple homicide that shocked the quiet community and the rest of the county.

Thompson arrived around 2 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day as detectives from state and local police and FBI agents stepped up their search for suspects in the stabbing deaths of four University of Idaho students earlier this month.

Thompson did not immediately respond to LBL Digital’s request for comment.

Aaron Snell, director of communications for the Idaho State Police, said Thompson’s presence alone does not signal a break in the case.

“He’s there every day,” she said “He continues to work on holidays/weekends.”

Thompson isn’t the only one working overtime on the case. On Thanksgiving Day, FBI agents, detectives and uniformed officers were coming and going from the building as they searched for answers to the students’ murders.

A law enforcement official said this evening that investigators planned to work well into the evening.

“They will be working through this holiday and into the weekend,” Snell said earlier.

Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Karnodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20, were found dead hours later after police say they were attacked in their sleep on Nov. 13.

The three women lived together in a house just off the University of Idaho campus in Moscow, and Chapin was visiting his girlfriend, Karnodol.

Two downstairs roommates and a pet dog in the home were unharmed, authorities said.

Police have not publicly identified any suspects or persons of interest.

But they have denied two female roommates who were downstairs at the time of the killings, a man who appeared on surveillance video at a food truck at the same time as Goncalves and Mogen shortly before they returned home, a “private party” driver. Those who drove them home were Goncalves’ ex-boyfriend and a group of friends who were present at the home Sunday morning when the initial 911 call was made.

Police said Wednesday they took 4,000 photos and collected 103 “pieces of evidence” of the contents of three dumpsters on King Road as part of the investigation.
