A bunch of students who reportedly died from suspected homicides off-campus from the University of Idaho has allegedly been identified on Monday, Nov. 14, by officials.

According to the Moscow Police Department in a report from the Post, the four students were identified as Ethan Chapin, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Kaylee Goncalves.

It was also added that the four students were friends based on their social media accounts. It was also found there that Chaplin and Kernodle were in a relationship with one post put up to celebrate the former’s birthday reading: “Life is so much better with you in it, love you!”

Mogen and Goncalves were from Coeur d’Alene and Rathdrum, Idaho, respectively, police said. Chapin was from Washington state while Kernodle was from Arizona.

According to the sister of Xana Kernodle, Alivea, the 20-year-old was a tough and fair person per a report by KREM2.

“She did absolutely everything she set her mind to. She didn’t hold back on love, fights or life. Kaylee was the ultimate go getter and constantly wanted an adventure,” she stated.

The actual cause of death of the four students remains unknown as of this writing with the case still undergoing investigation.

“Currently, there is no one in custody,” police said in an official press release. “The Moscow Police does not believe there is an ongoing community risk based on information gathered during the preliminary investigation.”

Mayor Art Bettge added that there is no imminent danger to the public as a result of the incident. He also did not mention how the students were killed and if there was a suspect behind the homicides.

“With a crime of this magnitude, it’s very difficult to work through,” Bettge said, noting cops need time to figure out what happened, according to the Times. Bettge also reportedly said, “The overall assessment is that it’s a crime of passion.”

In a report by CBS News, investigators suggested that an edged weapon was used in the deaths of the University of Idaho students. No weapons have been retrieved as of this writing
