The four University of Idaho students murdered with a Rambo-style knife last weekend may have been slaughtered by more than one killer, a famed forensic pathologist tells

Dr. Cyril Wecht, who has conducted thousands of forensic investigations over the decades, finds it hard to believe one person can methodically and quietly butcher four people under one roof – while two roommates slept in other rooms.

The victims, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, and their buddies Xana Kernodle, 20, and her boyfriend, Ethan Chapin, 20, apparently slept during the brutal November 13th bloodbath attack inside a Moscow, Idaho home.

Survivors, Dylan Mortensen and Bethany Funke, were asleep during grisly attack and later had a friend call 911 to report their roommates in the three story six-bedroom home were “unconscious.”

“Four young people get stabbed without fighting back – I mean how does that happen?” Dr. Wecht exclusively tells

“I kind of think there may have been more than one assailant to have killed four people like that and not to have an audible altercation or cries for help,” he added. You have to wonder if there was more than assailant.”

“There was no noise—no altercation?”

The 91-year-old pathologist who has investigated the deaths of Marilyn Monroe, JFK, and the 1969 Charles Manson murders also wondered how long the suspect(s) stayed inside the house and the number of stab wounds on each victim.

In a Nov. 17th press release, Latah County Coroner Cathy Mabbutt said each victim died from multiple stab wounds but decline to tell the exact number for each student.

Investigators plan to hold an afternoon press conference to update the public about their investigation after shifting through 700 tips and examining surveillance videos from nearby homes.

As previously reported, the parents of Kaylee have spoken out to defend her ex-boyfriend who police spoke to following the murders. Her parents told authorities they were wasting their time investigating their late daughter's ex-boyfriend.
