Bill Daly, a former investigator for the FBI, shared his theory on the murders of four students that occurred at the University of Idaho.
During an appearance on Fox News Sunday, Daly was asked why it is investigators believe the victims were targeted and why they are not revealing how they know that.
“The killer is still loose out there so the more information they provide…you don’t need to either get peoples’ concerns further out there in the community or signal something to a killer,” Daly explained.
Going into his theory on the murders, Daly told the network, “Someone would’ve had to know the inside of the home, know their routine.”
He added, “There are a couple of things that are starting to suggest that there was someone in these people’s orbit…that caused this incident to come about by this murderer.”

Commenting on DNA collection, Daly said, “Fingerprints or DNA are only good as something you can compare it to.”
It was reported that Ethan Chapin, 20; Madison Mogen, 21; Xana Kernodle, 20; and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, were found murdered with multiple stab wounds in a home near campus on November 13.
Investigators said last week they have been sorting through more than 1,000 tips and conducted at least 150 interviews, as Today noted.
“They’re kind of just telling me that they can’t tell me much, which is frustrating,” Steve Goncalves, the father of victim Kaylee Goncalves, told Today.
CNN reported students would be returning to the campus from Thanksgiving break on Monday.
“As such, faculty have been asked to prepare in-person teaching and remote learning options so that each student can choose their method of engagement for the final two weeks of the semester,” President Scott Green said in a statement.
A vigil has been scheduled for Wednesday to commemorate the victims.
