The Unspeakable Podcast: Episode 4 – Who was awake in the house?

Editor’s note: This is a new podcast series from our friends Alexandra Bunting and Savannah O’Connell, two lifelong Newport summer residents, best friends, and true crime junkies.


For weeks following the University of Idaho Murders, it was believed that Ethan, Xana, Maddie and Kaylee were killed in their sleep and that the two surviving roommates slept through the attacks. Then, a probable cause affidavit revealed that Xana and also one of the surviving roommates were likely awake. If one or two of the six students in the house were awake when the murders were taking place, how this all went down may be very different than what anyone thought. It begs the question, who really was awake in the house?


Alexandra Bunting and Savannah O’Connell may not be Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporters, but they did go to college where they lived in houses similar to 1122 King Road – the off-campus house in Moscow, ID that became famous after four college students were murdered there in November 2022. Despite lacking any investigative experience, their ability to identify and empathize with the victims using common sense sleuthing makes The Unspeakable an incredibly relatable and revelatory podcast series. What they find is shocking and unexpected as each episode of The Unspeakable takes listeners on a twisted journey, unpacking conspiracy theories, brutal crime scenes and daring to speak on the enigma of an unspeakable horror.

Every week full episodes drop with bone-chilling details as our intrepid reporters try to piece together the mystery of what happened inside 1122 King Road.
