Keith Morrison reports.

It’s the case that shocked the world and forever changed the University of Idaho.

Four students — Kaylee Goncalves, Maddie Mogen, Xana Kernodle, and Ethan Chapin were found stabbed to death in their off-campus house on King Road.

 A house once filled with happy memories, now a crime scene.

And loved ones are now left with only memories and thoughts of what might have been for Kaylee, Maddie, Xana, and Ethan.

Who would want to kill these four innocents? 

Dateline’s search for answers would take us across the country and back through time.

Soon, the house on King Road will be torn down. 

But the dark memories it holds will remain forever.

Bryan Kohberger, who is charged with the murders, was arraigned three days after the broadcast aired. A judge entered not guilty pleas on all charges on his behalf, as he and his attorney chose to stand silent. Kohberger is expected to go on trial in October 2023.
