Idaho stabbings weren’t “easy,” the suspect was male: former FBI agent

The stabbing murders of four University of Idaho students in November were not “simple,” a former FBI agent tweeted Sunday, concluding that the suspect “was a man.”

Jennifer Coffinaffer, a retired FBI agent and law enforcement analyst, shared her thoughts on the Idaho stabbings on Twitter Sunday. “When I was doing my EMT rotations from a fire station in S. Dallas, my first call was a stabbing,” Coffinaffer said.

She continued: “The woman was stabbed/perforated lung many times but she was screaming/angry. To murder those four [Idaho students] took ferocity, strength, determination. It is not easy. IME, that was it [a] Man.”

On November 13, the Moscow Police Department responded at a home near the University of Idaho and discovered Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Ethan Chapin, 20, and Xana Kernodle, 20, had been fatally stabbed.

Moscow police have yet to identify a suspect or person of interest by Thursday. Police were also unable to uncover a weapon but previously said they were looking for a “fixed blade knife”.

On Friday, Moscow police updated the public on their investigation’s progress, specifically regarding the search for a white 2011-2013 Hyundai Elantra. “We looked at massive amounts of video footage, particularly in the critical camera areas,” Chief James Fry said in a video posted to YouTube.

Fry continued, “We looked at the 24 hours before and 24 hours after and now we’ve expanded that even further to other cameras and other time frames.”

Moscow investigators say they believe the Hyundai’s occupants “may have important information to share about this case.”

Meanwhile, Coffinaffer also shared her thoughts on the possibility that video evidence was leaked. “I am concerned that as time goes on and the public grows impatient with LE regarding the #idahohomicides, more videos and other information provided to LE may leak out,” the former FBI agent said.

Coffinaffer argued, “That will only hurt the investigation. The killer is in the public eye and you can bet he’s watching.”

Sargaffe tells news week on Sunday, “With the new information regarding the Elantra, we know that the police are spreading information regarding the Elantra. That makes me wonder how the car comes into play. Nothing makes sense regarding the Elantra.”

“This crime was filled with passion and hatred and was committed by someone who feels so wronged,” argued Coffinaffer. She went on to say that she believed the crime had been thought through and carried out to some degree.

“I think, you [the suspect] were brilliant to enter and exit without being seen. They were familiar with the house,” Coffinaffer added.
