Students from the University of Idaho Were Stabbed In their Beds

Latah Coroner told a news outlet on Friday that some of the four students from the University of Idaho were stabbed in their beds. It was first reported that they were found dead in their rented off-campus apartment but no weapons were found during the search and investigation.

Coroner Cathy Mabbutt did not give more details about the fatal death of four students. However, he clarified that previous reports from different news outlets that the four victims have been murdered in their beds were not accurate.

In a published report in CBS News, Mabbutt said the students were killed with a larger knife based on the results of the autopsy. Meanwhile, the Moscow police said the coroner told them the students from the University of Idaho were likely asleep when they were murdered.

He also added that some had defensive wounds and each of them was stabbed multiple times. Police authorities also said that they were no signs of sexual assault.
