Authorities in Scranton, Pennsylvania, have taken a suspect into custody in relation to the murders of four University of Idaho students on November 13. The unnamed suspect, a male in his mid-20s, appeared in court this morning, but official details have yet to be released.


Fox News Digital broke the story:

A man in his mid 20s was taken into custody by local police and the FBI at 3 a.m. in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the law enforcement source said.

The suspect is a college student but does not attend the University of Idaho, the source added. He appeared in court this morning.

The murders of the four students — Ethan Chapin, 20, Xana Kernodle, 20, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, and Madison Mogen, 21 — have shaken the college town of Moscow, Idaho, with many online sleuths trying to crack the case and the local police department coming under increasing pressure to solve the high-profile slayings. The students were allegedly stabbed to death in their sleep in their off-campus house, while two other roommates sleeping in a separate part of the house were unharmed and apparently unaware of the gruesome attack.

The Moscow Police Department has scheduled a press conference for today at 1p PT.
