The Moscow Police Department said on Friday that it would hold a press conference at 1pm local time, asking reporters to “please hold all media inquiries” until after that time.

“Police Chief James Fry will give an update of the ongoing investigation into the quadruple homicide that occurred at 1122 King Road on Sunday, November 1,” said the department in a Facebook post.
“Officials from the Moscow Police Department, Idaho State Police, the City of Moscow, and University of Idaho will be present.”
