Police in Moscow, Idaho this week revealed a potential major break in the ongoing investigation of a brutal quadruple-slaying there, revealing that investigators are searching for the occupant of a vehicle that may have been near the scene of the crime when the killings took place.

Moscow police said in an update on Wednesday that they were "interested in speaking with the occupant(s) of a white 2011-2013 Hyundai Elantra, with an unknown license plate."

"Tips and leads have led investigators to look for additional information about a vehicle being in the immediate area of the King Street residence [where the murders took place] during the early morning hours of November 13th," the update said.

"Investigators believe the occupant(s) of this vehicle may have critical information to share regarding this case," they added. 

The killings took place in the early morning hours of Nov. 13, where four University of Idaho students in their early 20s were stabbed to death in their beds by an assailant or assailants. 

Police have still not revealed if they have identified any suspects in the investigation; officials have come under criticism in the near-month since the killings for having apparently made little progress in solving the murders.
