“Tips and leads have led investigators to look for additional information about a vehicle being in the immediate area of the King Street residence during the early morning hours of November 13th,” police said in a news release. 

“Investigators believe the occupant(s) of this vehicle may have critical information to share regarding this case.”

Moscow Police Department Chief James Fry and other law enforcement officers were at the home on Wednesday packing up some of the personal belongings of the victims. 

“It’s time for us to get those things back that really mean something to those families and hopefully help with some of their healing,” he said.
