10,000 tips, leads counted in University of Idaho murder investigation

MOSCOW, ID. — The Moscow Police Department collected 10,000 tips and leads related to the deaths of four University of Idaho students on Nov. 13.

Police still have the same number of resources looking through the tips, including a team that is specifically looking through digital content. Investigators say these tips and leads are not released to the public “as part of the ongoing commitment to keep information safe because it can be a powerful tool in the investigation process.”

“We’re reviewing all those tips,” Moscow Police Chief James Fry said. “We’re checking to ensure that we have individuals who look at those tips and any piece of evidence they can link this case.”

Investigators are also making progress on finding information on a white 2011-13 Hyundai Elantra in the area of the murders. They believe the person/people in the car at the time have key information on this case.

“What we’re asking is anybody else who still hasn’t sent in a tip — if you own a [Hyundai Elantra] or if you know someone driving one the day before or the day after [the murders] to please send that tip in,” Fry said.

You can watch Fry’s full interview below:

A suspect has still yet to be identified. Police will still be working through the holidays and will have a team working on the investigation through the holidays.

Detectives are still asking for anyone with information to provide it to them. You can provide information to their tip line at 208-883-7180. You can also email them at tipline@ci.moscow.id.us or send digital media to fbi.gov/moscowidaho.
