Idaho murders: Border authorities monitoring for Hyundai Elantra that was near scene of quadruple homicide

Date:


MOSCOW, Idaho – Ports of entry along the U.S.-Canadian border are monitoring for a white 2011-2013 Hyundai Elantra that was in the “immediate area” of a home where four University of Idaho students were murdered last month, a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) spokesperson said.

The Moscow Police Department said on Wednesday that they want to speak to the occupant or occupants of the vehicle, whom they believe may have “critical information” about the quadruple homicide on Nov. 13.

“Our ports of entry out that way are aware of it and will be keeping an eye out for it,” a CBP spokesperson told Fox News Digital.
