Floor plan shows the house where 4 students were mysteriously killed a month ago

An old floor plan of the Moscow, Idaho home where four college students were murdered in the early morning hours of Nov. 13 shows the second and third floors of their off-campus home when it was renovated there. over 20 years.

Middle school students, including Ethan Chapin, 20; Xana Kernodle, 20; Kaylee Gonçalves, 21; and Madison Mogen, 21, were stabbed to death between 3 and 4 a.m. that Sunday, probably while sleeping, on the second and third floors of the house.

The residence is currently a three-story, six-bed, three-bath single-family home frequently rented by area students. The victims and their roommates rented the house from June 5.

Two additional housemates who lived on the first floor of the house and slept on the homicide night were not injured in the attack which police said was an “isolated and targeted” incident.


The floor plan, which appears to be dated June 8, 2000, shows how the house originally had a separate garage which no longer exists. The front door of the house leads directly from the driveway to the house, which has two bedrooms, a bathroom and a boiler room on the first floor.

The two bedrooms that are now on the second floor were once a dining room and an office, according to the old plan.

Finally, the third floor remains essentially the same as shown on the floor plan, with a bathroom and two bedrooms, one of which has a door that leads to a balcony that is not accessible from the ground.

Moscow Police Department Chief James Fry told a news conference in November there was no sign of a forced entry into the house when police initially responded to reports of someone unconscious at 11.58am on November 13 and found all four students dead upon arrival.

An unknown number of friends arrived at the scene before the police arrived. A friend used one of the surviving roommate’s phones to dial 911 after seeing a victim who the friend said had passed out and would not wake up.

Many students left campus early before the Thanksgiving break after the tragedy. While a majority of students returned to campus after Thanksgiving, students are preparing to leave campus again for Christmas.
