"The vehicle was involved in a collision and subsequently impounded. The vehicle is registered out of Colorado and the female owner is not believed to have any relation to any property in Moscow, Idaho or the ongoing murder investigations," MPD said in a Tuesday update. "The public is asked to stop contacting the owner."

The Dec. 17 caller reported a person sleeping in the damaged vehicle. Police made contact with that person, who was homeless, but there was no further report.

Police are still searching for a white Hyundai Elantra that was spotted near the scene of the Idaho quadruple homicide in the early morning hours of Nov. 13.

The occupants of the vehicle on that date have yet to come forward since police announced a be-on-the-lookout alert on Dec. 7.
