Four college students were killed around 3 or 4 a.m. Sunday in Moscow, Idaho, but authorities have yet to narrow down a motive, which could include a “robbery gone wrong” or a “crime of passion.” according to Mayor Art Bettge.

“It’s one of a myriad of possibilities, including robbery gone wrong, robbery gone wrong…any one of those is a possibility and not one to the exclusion of others,” Bettge told Fox News Digital on Monday.

Moscow Police Department officers responded to a report of an unconscious person around noon at his home on King Road, which is just off Greek Row and just blocks from the University of Idaho campus.

Officers could be seen carrying boxes of evidence in and out of the home as they searched the scene Monday.

Police do not have a suspect in custody, but Bettge said there is no ongoing threat to the community based on the timing of the incident.

“The crime itself occurred at three or four in the morning. Police were informed at noon,” Bettge said Monday. “If there was going to be a crime wave, it probably would have been perpetuated over that period of time.”

Residents of Moscow, a city of about 25,000 in northern Idaho on the Washington state border, were stunned as police investigate.

“The university and the city are integrated in many ways. And the fate of one resonates very strongly with the other,” Bettge said. “This is a huge shock, especially as it relates to students, who are just coming out of two years of social isolation during COVID.”

The University of Idaho canceled classes Monday and will hold a candlelight vigil for the deceased students later this week.

“Words cannot adequately describe the light these students brought to this world or alleviate the depth of suffering we feel at their passing under these tragic circumstances,” University of Idaho President Scott Green said in a statement Monday. .

“No one feels that loss more than family and friends. The university is working directly with those affected and is committed to supporting all students, families and employees as this event truly touches all of us.”
