Two federal law enforcement sources confirm to CNN that a suspect has been detained in connection with the investigation into the murders of four University of Idaho students.


Sources told CNN the arrest was made by the FBI in northeastern Pennsylvania.

The Moscow Police Department in Idaho said it will hold a press conference this Friday at 1 pm local time (4 pm ET) to announce progress in the investigation.

The press conference comes a day after police said they received around 20,000 tips through more than 9,025 emails, 4,575 phone calls and 6,050 digital media submissions, while conducting more than 300 interviews in the case of the four students murdered in an off-campus home.

No suspect, motive or weapon has been identified.

The students, Kaylee Goncalves, 21;

Madison Mogen, 21;

Xana Kernodle, 20;

and Kernodle's boyfriend, Ethan Chapin, 20;

They were likely asleep when they were stabbed multiple times in the early hours of November 13, authorities said.

Some of the victims had defensive wounds, a coroner said.

The murders shocked the small college town.

It was the first murder in seven years.

“Investigators believe someone has information that adds context to what occurred on the night of the murders and are continuing to request additional images, video, and social media content.

Our focus remains on the investigation, not the activities of an individual shown in the complaint,” the update said.

Police say the search is continuing for the white 2011-2013 Hyundai Elantra that is believed to have been near the home early on November 13.

The house where the murders occurred will be cleaned, but will remain an active crime scene under police control, authorities said.

Moscow police say they have worked with a property management services company to remove "potential biohazards and other harmful substances used to collect evidence," according to the update.

The house will be turned over to the property management company.
