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

“It’s there every day,” he said. “Continue working over the holidays or the weekend.”
Thompson isn’t the only one working overtime on the case. On Thanksgiving Day, FBI agents, detectives, and uniformed officers came and went from the building as they continued to search for answers about the student murders.
A law enforcement official said in the evening that investigators planned to work well into the night.
“They will be working through this holiday and through the weekend,” Snell previously said.
Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20, were found dead hours after police say someone attacked them in their sleep on Nov. 13.

“Kaylee mentioned that she had a stalker, but detectives have been unable to corroborate the statement,” police said Wednesday. “Investigators are asking anyone with information on a possible stalker, or unusual cases, to contact the tip line.”
Police said on Wednesday they had taken 4,000 photographs and collected 103 “pieces of evidence” including the contents of three rubbish bins on King Road as part of the investigation.
