The University of Idaho lost four students on November 13. The community is grieving the tragic deaths of Xana Kernodle, Ethan Chapin, Madison Mogen, and Kaylee Goncalves. The home where students had parties and hangouts is now scheduled to be torn down. By demolishing the home, the community can have closure and try moving past this tragedy. 

The house was offered to the University, who accepted for several reasons. The school had decided to destroy the home that brings lots of memories. The University announced the news Friday. The house on King Street in Moscow will not be standing anymore, this will help the community heal, and the "Demolition also removes efforts to further sensationalize the crime scene," said President Scott Green.  

A month went by with unanswered questions about who murdered the four students, December 30, Bryan Kohberger was arrested and charged with first-degree murder and burglary. Arrested with four charges of first-degree murder can result in life in prison to the death penalty. June 26 of 2023, is when the five-day preliminary hearing begins. The police collected over 100 pieces of evidence and photographs, including 3D scans throughout the investigation. Kohberger, arrested in Pennsylvannia, left lots of evidence in the home of the students.

A memorial and healing garden will be placed where the home used to be, Green announced. The community is hopeful this semester when the home will be torn down. "The garden will also be a place of remembrance of other students we have lost and a place of healing for those left behind," Green said. 

 Furthermore, Green stated, "We will never forget Xana, Ethan, Madison, and Kaylee, and I will do everything in my power to protect their dignity and respect their memory.” Justice will be served for the four students who were murdered, and community healing will take place one step at a time.
