Online Sleuths Spot “Shadowy Figures” On Police Bodycam Lurking Around Idaho Crime Scene Night of The Murders

3 min read

I don’t know what is going on with this Idaho quadruple murder case. We’re around one month out, and we’re still no closer to solving this case. Early on, I was SURE that police had to know who their suspect was, and I figured they were holding their cards close to the vest, while they gathered evidence. Wrong. Now, I see that was totally off the mark. I don’t like to bash cops who are working on a case, because a lot of stuff goes on behind the scenes. But as this drags on, the families are growing more and more upset and frustrated over this unsolved case. They just want to know who brutally murdered their children.

And now, thanks to online sleuths, it looks like a new clue may have popped up.

Online “detectives” spotted something that police have missed.

In bodycam footage from two police officers, there appear to be people walking in the background right near the crime scene around the time of the murder.

Here’s how it played out:

The New York Post reported that while authorities have dismissed the significance of bodycam video showing cops stopping suspected underage drinkers on the day of the Idaho student murders, eagle-eyed online sleuths have noticed a detail they may have missed.

Several shadowy figures can be seen walking in the background of the footage, which was shot around 2:50 a.m. Nov. 13, about a tenth of a mile from the home where the four University of Idaho students were murdered, Fox News reported.

Three students who were stopped by plainclothes officers were not involved in the brutal crime and the footage was of no evidentiary value to investigators, police have stressed.

But online sleuths have noticed people walking two houses down from the off-campus King Road home where Madison Mogen, 21, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Ethan Chapin, 20, and his girlfriend Xana Kernodle, 20, were killed between 3 and 4 a.m., according to the news outlet.

It was unclear if local law enforcement or the FBI have identified or interviewed the people captured walking in the dismissed videos, accord to Fox News Digital.

The news outlet said it has made several inquiries about the images but that it had not received a response.

“During the timeframe of the murders, there were people in the general vicinity,” crime vlogger Olivia Vitale told Fox News Digital.

“Between the people with law enforcement and the people in the background of the bodycam footage, that is about half a dozen people. The importance is they may have witnessed something unbeknownst to them,” added Vitale, who has more than a million followers on TikTok.

Pat Diaz, a former Miami-Dade homicide detective-turned-private investigator, concurred with the online sleuths’ assessment.

“If they haven’t yet, they need to locate them ASAP. That is a great lead. Someone knows something,” Diaz told Fox News Digital.

My question, is have cops checked every single cellphone that dinged off that tower that night? Granted, perhaps the killer(s) didn’t have a phone on them, but you never know.

One way or another, cops need to get something going here.
