Mysterious Dog Connected To ID Murders?

Idaho Police Explain Dog’s Role In College Murder Case

( – Idaho police said a recent report about a skinned dog had nothing to do with the murder of the four university students who were stabbed to death two weeks ago.

Themurders of University of Idaho students Ethan Chapin, 20, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Madison Mogen, 21, on November 13 stunned the small town of Moscow and so far, the police still have no suspects.

Pamela Colbert’s neighbors found her lost 12-year-old mini Australian shepherd completely skinned just down the road from her home on October 21. Colbert’s home is several miles from the scene of the murder.

Colbert said the Latah County Sheriff’s Office supervisor told her that her dog wasn’t attacked by another animal, but skinned by a human.

Some locals began to wonder if the gruesome incident was related to the November 13 slayings. But the Moscow police dispelled the rumors.

In a press release last Monday, the Moscow Police Department said detectives investigating the students’ murders were aware of the dog-skinning incident and have determined that it is unrelated to the murders.

It has been over two weeks since the students were fatally stabbed and still police have no suspects.

So far, investigators have conducted over 150 interviews and received more than a thousand tips in the case.

Idaho State Police communications director Aaron Snell said anyone who knows anything, even the smallest detail, should contact law enforcement.

Snell told Fox News that nothing has been ruled out and investigators are “looking at all the angles” and will continue to investigate “all potential leads.”

The Latah County coroner determined that all four students were victims of homicide by stabbing and their wounds had likely been inflicted while they were sleeping. While the coroner indicated that some of the victims showed signs of defensive wounds, the police have declined to elaborate.
