Detectives have hours of footage from a Moscow gas station that captured a white sedan speeding by the scene of the slayings. An overnight assistant manager at the gas station told Fox News that she saw the white sedan speed by around 3:45 a.m. Nov. 13, the day the students were found stabbed to death. Moscow detectives have also asked for any and all video from area residents and businesses
The four University of Idaho victims were Ethan Chapin, 20; Madison Mogen, 21; Xana Kernodle, 20 and Kaylee Goncalves, 21. The three women were roommates, and Kernodle was dating Chapin.
More than a month after the slayings, no suspects are in custody, and no weapon has been located.
