  1. Hi there, is it true that the vin number for this vehicle has returned info that the car was linked the son of the landlord of 1122 King Road, Moscow, Idaho, or is that an unverified rumor. I do not see the Vin number listed anywhere .

    • This vehicle, and the driver/owner ,are in no way associated with the Moscow, Idaho murders, the property at 1122 Kings Road, Moscow, Idaho, or the property owners at 1122 Kings Road, Moscow, Idaho.
