EXCLUSIVE: MOSCOW, Idaho – Latah County Prosecutor Bill Thompson visited Moscow Police Headquarters Thursday as investigators worked over Thanksgiving on a shocking quadruple murder that shocked the peaceful community and the rest of the county.
Thompson arrived around 2:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day as state and local police detectives and FBI agents stepped up their search for a suspect in the murder of four University of Idaho students who were stabbed to death in the middle of the night earlier this month.
Thompson did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
Aaron Snell, director of communications for the Idaho State Police, said Thompson’s mere presence did not signify a break in the case.
