University of Idaho responds to student death

Posted: Updated:
MOSCOW, Idaho - University of Idaho President Timothy P. White joined City of Moscow Police Chief Dan Weaver and City of Moscow Mayor Nancy Chaney at a news conference today to discuss the death of university student David R. Boss.

The 21-year-old senior history major was found deceased in his off-campus apartment early Saturday morning, March 31. Moscow Police and the Latah County Coroner have determined the cause of death to be homicide by gunshot.

"I want to express my heartfelt sympathy and condolences to David's family and friends in Boise; his friends, his faculty and acquaintances at the university and all who knew him," said White. "I'm deeply saddened by this event. It is uncommon for Moscow and for the university. And quite frankly, I'm mad as hell at the loss of this young life."  White said violence has not had and will not have a foothold in the community.

White commended and expressed confidence in the Moscow Police Department, which has launched an aggressive investigation into the homicide. According to Chief Weaver, resources from Latah County and Idaho State Police have been sent to assist with the investigation.

 "The university is committed to work with authorities as they - and we - seek answers to questions raised by this tragic incident," said White.
