Idaho State Board of Education Releases Statement Following Arrest in Moscow Homicide Investigation

BOISE – Dr. Linda Clark, Vice President of the Idaho State Board of Education, released a statement on behalf of the Board Friday following the Moscow Police Department’s announcement that 28-year-old Bryan Kohberger had been arrested in connection with the quadruple homicide of four University of Idaho students in November.

“On behalf of the Idaho State Board of Education, I commend the Moscow Police Department, the Idaho State Police, and the FBI for their tremendous efforts to find justice for Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin, and their families.

I also want to express my condolences to their families and friends. While the arrest of a suspect is a major development that may provide some answers, it will not ease the pain of losing four vibrant lives. 

As we prepare to begin a new semester, I hope that a new sense of confidence takes hold among students, parents, faculty and the entire University of Idaho and Moscow communities.

May we all keep Kaylee, Madison, Xana, and Ethan in our hearts as we begin to move forward.”
