Moscow Police Captain Roger Lanier said Thursday they are combing through a database of 22,000 registered white Hyundai Elantras that match their criteria, which they sort.

“Maybe one of your neighbors has one in the garage that he doesn’t drive that often. Maybe there’s one that just isn’t in the registry,’ the captain said. ‘Let us know.’
On Thursday, Kaylee’s grieving parents, Kristi and Steven Goncalves, asked local businesses to search surveillance footage after a gas station attendant found a cut-out of a white Hyundai on the night of the unsolved murders.
They expressed grave concern that they could lose vital evidence as time is of the essence, especially as their daughter’s gruesome death on Tuesday marked a month. They are urging local businesses to review surveillance footage for other leads.
she said Good morning America that many of these little video cameras have a 24 hour mark, there is a 7 day mark, a 1 month.
“We meet the month [mark]’ said Steven, Kaylee’s father. ‘If the crucial part of the evidence lies outside of it [time frame]then we have to get it now.’
Xana Kernodle’s family has been working to get their own leads by distributing flyers on the University of Idaho campus and to local residents. Their goal, the family said, is to distribute 5,000 flyers, the news outlet reported
Kristi Goncalves called her daughter’s killer “methodical,” ABC News reported.
‘I think he thought it through really well. I think he was fast, I think he was calm. And he got in and out,’ said Kristi.
There are currently no suspects. Two of the roommates, who were home at the time of the killings but most likely overslept, are not suspects, police said.
