Check out what Fox News reported:
Authorities have a suspect in custody in the Nov. 13 murders of four University of Idaho students, a high-ranking law enforcement source told Fox News Digital.
A man in his mid 20s was taken into custody by local police and the FBI at 3 a.m. in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the law enforcement source said Friday.
The suspect is a college student but does not attend the University of Idaho, the source added.
He appeared in court this morning in connection to the slayings of Ethan Chapin, 20, Xana Kernodle, 20, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, and Madison Mogen, 21, who were stabbed to death in a rental home just yards from campus, according to the source.
A press conference is scheduled in Moscow, Idaho, at 1 p.m. to announce the major break in the case.
On November 13 at noon, authorities were alerted to an unconscious individual at a non-university housing location. Upon arriving at the scene, law enforcement discovered four college students had been brutally stabbed to death.
It has been over 30 days since the gruesome murders of Kaylee Goncalves, Ethan Chapin, Xana Kernodle, and Madison Mogen. Despite the passage of time, authorities have yet to identify any suspects or locate the murder weapon.
Despite thorough investigations, authorities have concluded that the roommates who were present at the time of the murders had no involvement in the crimes. Additionally, the man seen on surveillance footage outside of the food truck and the driver who drove the victims home have also been ruled out as suspects.
Law enforcement authorities continue to search for any external surveillance footage recorded during the early morning hours of November 13th in the vicinity of the murders. They have requested that businesses and residents within the area provide them with all available videos, even if there is no visible activity. In addition, they are seeking any tips or surveillance footage that might provide information about suspicious behavior on the night of the murders, specifically in areas where the victims were seen.
