“We hope to have the house down before school starts,” Jodi Walker, the university’s spokesperson, told the outlet in a statement. “We don’t yet have a date for demolition. We continue to work through the process.”

The victims — Madison Mogen, 21, Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20 — personal items will be removed, in addition to the other two housemates who were unharmed after Bryan Kohberger broke into the home and stabbed them to death.

“One, that’s a big jump to go from [an alleged] non-violent theft — and from a family member — to being charged with multiple homicides. And two, eight years is a long time for nothing to happen. So, I would want to know, both as a prosecutor and as the investigator, what he did in those years in between?” he continued.
