It’s been more than six weeks since the shocking murders of four University of Idaho students and there appears to be no leads — at least, as far as what officials are sharing.
So it’s even more surprising that during that time, Idaho’s Moscow Police Department is being cagey about who investigators have reached out to for help as they try to solve the murders of Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20
It’s unclear whether Canadian law enforcement is involved in the probe, considering the scene of the murders is less than a four-hour drive to the closest border crossing at Rykerts, B.C.
But when asked whether officials were working with agencies in Canada, police spokesperson Aaron Snell was cryptic.
“We are unwilling to speculate on the location of a potential suspect – which we currently do not have,” Snell told the New York Post. “However, we will work with any outside agency that may be able to support our investigation.”
Also odd is that Idaho’s three Crime Stoppers programs don’t appear to be involved — a move one program director described as “surprising.”
While not all Crime Stoppers programs offer cash rewards for tips that lead to an arrest in a case, the Southwest Idaho branch does – up to $1,000, the Post reported.

A University of Idaho graduate who used to live in the house where the students were slain is baffled that the killer went unnoticed walking in the “creaky” home.
“It’s definitely an old, creaky house,” Cole Alteneder told ABC News. “You can’t walk up any of the stairs or on any of the floors without everybody in the house knowing it.”
He said that there were plenty of parties thrown at the house and “a lot of students are very familiar with the inside of the home.”
Alteneder added that he thinks “everybody expected” an arrest by now.
