A year after a gruesome murder, the house where the crime occurred was demolished.

The university, which owns the property, had delayed the demolition twice due to concerns about affecting the trial.

Families of the victims opposed the demolition, fearing it would destroy critical evidence. (Trending: Could Taylor Swift Save Biden In 2024?)

However, some locals felt the removal was necessary for community healing.

The house had been extensively documented, but some believed that physical viewing by jurors was essential for a fair trial.

“It is the grim reminder of the heinous act that took place there…it is time for its removal and to allow the collective healing of our community to continue,” University of Idaho President Scott Green said.

Despite concerns, the demolition proceeded, sparking a debate about the balance between community healing and the need for evidence in the pursuit of justice.

“My daughter was murdered in that house, and there is no way they should be destroying any evidence,” mother Cara Northington said.

“Isn’t it better to have the King Rd. House and not need it than need the house and not have it?” another family pressed.

“This is one of the most horrific crimes in the history of Idaho and the University wants to destroy one of the most critical pieces of evidence in the case.”

“This was so shocking to the whole community, the outpouring of love and concern and horror that followed was so stunning,” local Linda Moser said.

“Removing this house isn’t going to remove the image of it or the memory and I think it’s vital for jurors to be able to see it.”

“I worry that people looking at it on videos or 3-D models won’t get a sense of the scale of the place, won’t understand the acoustics.”

“I don’t understand the rush to tear it down. If it’s about healing, then surely the way to heal is to have a sound trial. I think they’re rushing to do this and they’re putting that in jeopardy.”
