Slain Idaho student Kaylee Goncalves called mystery man 7 times hour before her murder, sister says
According to the sister of one of the victims, two of the four murdered University of Idaho students called a mysterious man ten times just before they were killed.
Her sister Alivea informed Inside Edition on Friday that Kaylee Goncalves started making the calls on November 13 at around 2:30 a.m.
Six times between 2:26 and 2:44 a.m., Kaylee contacts the man, and then she calls him one last time at 2:52 a.m., according to Alivea.
Madison Mogen, her roommate, contacted the same unidentified male three times between 2:44 and 2:52, according to Alivea.
The man’s name was withheld by The Post because he had not yet been identified by law enforcement as a suspect.
The bodies of Goncalves, 21, Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Kernodle’s boyfriend Ethan Chapin, 20, were discovered at the Moscow, Idaho, home they shared.
The victims were “likely sleeping” when they were killed, according to the coroner, and the police believe the “isolated, targeted” killings happened between 3 and 4 a.m. on Sunday.
Nearly a week after the murder, no arrests had been made, no suspects had been publicly named, and no signs of forced entry had been discovered at the residence.
Police stated that although two additional roommates were at home during the murders, they were not thought to be suspects.
The killings happened after the roommates had a fun night out, police said. Ethan and Xana went to a frat party, while Kaylee and Maddie partied at a bar and then went to a food truck. They returned home around 1:45 a.m. after their night out, police said.
In an interview with The Independent on Friday, Kernodle’s father criticized officials for keeping quiet about the inquiry, saying they were “not saying anything” about his “worst fear.”
“How can you safeguard a child? You forbid him from attending college and keep them at home? They won’t remain at home like that, according to Jeffery Kernodle.
Based on the extent of her injuries, the distraught father told the publication that his daughter attempted to defend herself against the attack.
So, it’s pretty perplexing. The greatest nightmare, simply because it is unimaginable.
About eight hours after the murders, a 911 caller informed the authorities of the killings. The tipster’s identity had not been made public by the police.
