The stabbing murders of four University of Idaho students in November were not “easy” one former FBI agent tweeted on Sunday, concluding that the suspect “was a man.”

Jennifer Coffindaffer, a retired FBI agent and law enforcement analyst, took to Twitter on Sunday voicing her thoughts on the Idaho stabbings. “When I was doing my EMT Rotations out of a Firestation in S. Dallas, my first call was to a stabbing,” Coffindaffer said.

She continued, “The woman was stabbed many times/perforated lung but was screaming/angry. To murder these four [Idaho students] took ferociousness, strength, resolve. It wan’t easy. IME, it was [a] man.”

On November 13, the Moscow Police Department responded to a home near the University of Idaho and discovered Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Ethan Chapin, 20, and Xana Kernodle, 20, fatally stabbed.

As of Thursday, Moscow Police have yet to identify a suspect or person of interest. Police have also been unable to uncover a weapon, but previously said that they were searching for a “fixed-blade knife.”

On Friday, Moscow Police updated the public on their progress in the investigation, specifically regarding the search for a white 2011-2013 Hyundai Elantra. “We have looked at massive amounts of video footage, especially in the critical camera areas,” Chief James Fry said in a video posted to YouTube.

Fry continued, “We’ve looked at the 24 hours prior to and 24 hours after of those and now were extending that out even further to other cameras and other time frames.”

Moscow investigators continue to say that they believe the occupant(s) of the Hyundai “may have critical information to share regarding this case.”

Meanwhile, Coffindaffer also shared her thoughts regarding the possibility of video evidence getting leaked. “I fear that as time goes on & the public becomes more impatient with LE concerning the #idahohomicides, more video & other information provided to LE may be leaked,” the former FBI agent said.

Coffindaffer argued, “This will only harm the investigation. The Killer is part of the public & you can bet he IS watching.”

Coffindaffer told Newsweek on Sunday: “With the new information regarding the Elantra, we know police are disseminating info out regarding the Elantra. That makes me wonder how the car comes into play. Nothing is making sense regarding the Elantra.”

“This crime was filled with passion, hate, and done by someone who feels they were so wronged,” Coffindaffer argued. She continued, saying that she believes the crime may have been thought out and executed to a degree.

“I think they [the suspect] were brilliant to enter and exit without being seen. They were familiar with the house,” Coffindaffer added.
