The two roommates of the slain four students, who were stabbed to death in their beds, from the University of Idaho break their silence.
Four Students from the University of Idaho Were Stabbed To Death
Four students from the University of Idaho were stabbed to death in their beds in an off-campus apartment last month. Victims were Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin, both 20 years, and 21-year-olds Kaylee Goncalves and Madison Mogen.
The four were found dead on Nov.13 and caught the attention of the legions of true crime amateur detectives. Until now, no arrested were made and the object used in the killing was not yet recovered, according to a published article in BBC.
Two Roommates Break Their Silence
Dylan Mortensen and Bethany Funke, who shared the apartment with the three students, returned home at around 1:00 a.m. when the incident happened. Police authorities said that it was probably the time that the attack also happened but they already cleared the two students from the crime.
On Dec.2, Mortensen said during the vigil offered to the slain students, “I know it will be hard to not have the four of them in our lives, but I know Xana, Ethan, Maddie, and Kaylee would want us to live life and be happy, and they would want us to celebrate their lives.”
In a separate message, Funke described her late friends as “gifts to this world in your own special way and it just won’t be the same without you”.
