Roommates of Idaho Killing Break Their Silence

Isabella Flores-Pena

The two surviving roommates, Bethany Funke and Dylan Mortensen, from the killing on Nov.13 of the four college students near the University of Idaho have cracked their silence. Both girls wrote a statement that the youth pastor read publicly. Bethany wrote “I know somewhere Xana and Ethan are together, keeping each other company, watching us and telling us it’s okay we have each other. Dylan wishes that she could give all of her roommates “one last hug.” 

The police have stated they won’t put out anymore information about the case unless it is completely vetted and won’t harm the ongoing case. Bethany and Dylan were both sleeping on the first floor when Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernoodle, and Ethan Chapin were stabbed to death. Nearly 3,000 tips detectives have sorted through and poured over 4,000 crime scene pictures. Officials say that there are still no suspects or people of interest in the case
