As of December 6, the Moscow Police Department have not yet identified a suspect. While MPD and local investigators believe the atrocity is an isolated incident, Vandal students and Moscow citizens remain on edge and in search of answers.

In an official press release on Sunday, November 13, MPD explained their reason for remaining tight-lipped about the investigation.

There have been statements and speculation about this case, victim injuries, cause of death, evidence collection and processing, and investigative techniques. With the active criminal investigation, law enforcement has not released additional facts to the family or the public. We recognize the frustration this causes and that speculation proliferates in the absence of facts. However, we firmly believe speculation and unvetted information is a disservice to the victims, their families, and our community. The Moscow Police Department is committed to providing information whenever possible but not at the expense of compromising the investigation and prosecution.—MPD

According to the University of Idaho's website, Idahoans statewide and the Vandal community "expressed a desire to show or give support" to the victims, as well as their families and loved ones.

On Wednesday, November 30, the University of Idaho hosted a memorial vigil for the four slain teens. In attendance were the families of Madison Mogen, Ethan Chapin, and Kaylee Goncalves. As reported by KTVB7, the dean of students spoke on behalf of Xana Kernodle.
