The affidavit describes how officers discovered a bloody scene over two floors and a leather knife sheath in one room where two victims were discovered in a single bed.

“I later noticed what appeared to be a tan leather knife sheath laying on the bed next to Mogen’s right side,” officer Brett Payne wrote in the affidavit released Thursday, adding the sheath had “Ka-Bar” ‘USMC” and “the United States Marine Corps eagle globe and anchor insignia.”

“The Idaho state lab later located a single source of male DNA (suspect Profile) left on the button snap of the knife sheath.”
