Four University of Idaho students were found dead near campus in what a local official described Monday as a “crime of passion.”
Art Betge, the mayor of Moscow, Idaho, who declined to say how the victims were killed or whether a suspect was at large, said authorities were still investigating what happened.
On Monday, the victims were identified as Ethan Chapin, 20, of Conway, Wash.; Madison Mogen, 21, of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; Xana Kernodle, 20, of Avondale, Arizona; and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, of Rathdrum, Idaho.
The University of Idaho confirmed that all the victims were students and canceled classes on Monday.
“Words cannot adequately describe the light these students brought into this world or soothe the depth of pain,” University President Scott Green said in a message addressed to students and staff.
Moscow is a university city of approximately 25,000 inhabitants. Over 10,000 students are enrolled on the University of Idaho campus, which primarily focuses on engineering and agriculture. The city has not recorded any murders since 2015.
