More than a month has passed since the four beloved students were slain inside their residence on King Road. During that time, Moscow Police have received thousands of tips from the public and investigated numerous leads, but a suspect is yet to be identified.

In a press release from the Moscow Police Department on Dec. 7, investigators expressed a strong interest in locating the owner of a white Hyundai Elantra. At the time of the press release, local news outlet KTVB7 described the development as "one of the most significant updates regarding a lead" in the quadruple homicide.

As of Dec. 16, no license plate number has been identified.

KTVB7 reports the Moscow Police Department and partnering authorities "are still sorting through the 22,000 Hyundai Elantras that fit their search criteria."

Your information, whether you believe it is significant or not, might be the piece of the puzzle that helps investigators solve these murders.
