Rumors and speculation swirl about the weeks-old quadruple murder of University of Idaho students. Police have not found a murder weapon and have not identified any suspects.
The four students were stabbed to death while sleeping in a three-story off-campus housing building. Officials note the murders occurred between 3 and 4 a.m. on Nov. 13.
The victims are Kaylee Goncalves, 21; Ethan Chapin, 20; Xana Kernodle, 20; and Madison Mogen, 21.
Recently, Steve Goncalves, the father of Kaylee, voiced his concern that his daughter may have had a stalker.
In an interview with ABC News, reporter Kayna Whitworth asked Steve: “Did [Kaylee] ever talk to you about a potential stalker or somebody that made her uncomfortable?”
Steve, still shaken by the tragedy, replied: “She did,” affirming a previous statement by police suggesting Kaylee had a stalker.https://twitter.com/JosephMorrisYT/status/1597955634284351490
A Nov. 22 press release from the Moscow Police Department stated:
“Investigators have looked extensively into information they received about Kayle Goncalves having a stalker. They have pursued hundreds of pieces of information related to this topic and have not been able to verify or identify a stalker.”
Police have also noted that the murders were an “isolated, targeted incident” but have not revealed which of the four victims was the target or why.
“Do you think Kaylee was specifically targeted?” Whitworth asked Goncalves.
Kaylee’s father replied: “It’s a fear of mine. It’s a fear that when you have something like this happen, the last thing you want to do is hurt the other family, and you don’t want to have any kind of responsibility for those people to feel like they were just casualties.”
The distraught father said he saw his daughter shortly before her death. “Kaylee was just home, and she was talking about her car, and she was pretty excited,” Steve recalled.
Kaylee was set to graduate in December and recently purchased a Range Rover. Her car was pictured on Tuesday evening, covered in snow while being towed from the King Road crime scene along with four other vehicles.
Police said the vehicles were being stored and processed for evidence.
Kaylee’s father told Whitworth: “I haven’t earned the ability to grieve the way that I want to grieve. I want to be able to have justice first.”
