MOSCOW, Idaho – EXCLUSIVE: Detectives collected eight hours of surveillance video Tuesday morning from a gas station in Moscow where a clerk saw a white sedan passing by at 3:45 a.m. on the night of the unsolved stabbing deaths of four University of Idaho students, according store workers.
An overnight assistant manager told Fox News Digital that she’s been reviewing the tapes a little bit at a time over the past few days, looking for clues in her downtime on the graveyard shift. She said she was not working on the night of the murders.
Monday night, she said, she reached the 3 o’clock hour and spotted the car. She said she took a picture of the screen and sent it to an email address police set up to receive tips.
“I had a weird feeling to go get on the cameras,” she said, asking that her name not be publicized out of safety concerns as the suspect remains at large.
The car drove by “real quick,” she said, and turned down a side street off Highway 8.
Last week, police said they were looking to speak with the occupants of a white Hyundai Elantra who may have information on the slayings of Madison Mogen, 21, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Ethan Chapin, 20, and Xana Kernodle, 20. The three women lived together at the home and Chapin, who was dating Kernodle, spent the night over.
Police have said they believe anyone in the Elantra may have “critical information to share” in the case.
Investigators arrived Tuesday morning around 11 a.m. and collected the video.
The store manager said that the officers identified themselves as state detectives and took a whole shift’s worth of video.
Asked if they’d found anything substantial as they left the building, one responded, “Not yet.”
