Idaho college murders – update: Police call logs show reports of ‘blood’ stains and ‘suspicious’ men in Moscow as suspect at large


Video shows mystery man with murdered Idaho students

Moscow residents have called 911 multiple times to report “suspicious” men and other disturbing incidents in the small college town in the two weeks since four University of Idaho students were brutally stabbed to death in an off-campus home.

The independent‘s analysis of police call logs revealed chilling complaints, including a man with a knife, a person “wearing a black ski mask”, a “man outside taking pictures of the upper floors” of a house and reports of people who think someone has tried to enter their house.

In one particularly chilling call, a caller said a man had given their daughter a note on the back of a receipt at her workplace warning, “You better watch out.”

In another, the caller said a man was “walking around taking down the posters with the tip line information” — believed to be the tip line for the murders of Madison Mogen, Kaylee Goncalves, Xana Kerndole, and Ethan Chapin.

While several reports seem disturbing, they also show how the community is wracked with fear as no arrests have been made and no suspects have been named in the case.


Vigils will take place on Wednesday

The small university town of Moscow is preparing to hold a vigil on Wednesday in memory of the four victims killed in a brutal knife attack on Nov. 13.

The University of Idaho will host the event on November 30 at 5 p.m. local time on the Moscow campus, followed by an event on the Boise campus at 6 p.m.

The university will “honor the memory of Ethan, Xana, Madison and Kaylee,” it says.

People can also participate in the vigil remotely.

The vigil was originally scheduled to take place in the days following the murders, but was postponed as the city emptied, with terrified students raising sticks and leaving as the killer or killers remain at large.

Several students returned to Moscow on Monday after the Thanksgiving holiday.

Students all died “quickly,” says the victim’s father

The four students killed in the knife attack all died quickly, according to the grieving father of victim Kaylee Goncalves.

Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin were killed around 3 a.m. or 4 a.m. on Nov. 13, police said.

Their bodies were left undiscovered for several hours, and police received an 911 call at 11:58 a.m. to report an “unconscious person” in the home.

Steve Goncalves told ABC News that he had learned it wouldn’t have made a difference if the victims had been found earlier, as his daughter and her three friends had died quickly and so would not have been rescued.

“No one suffered and no one felt that kind of pain,” he said.

The last hours of the murder victims in Idaho follow

It could have been anyone, in any American college town, on any Saturday night. Such was the behavior of the murdered students in Moscow, Idaho, just hours before they were brutally stabbed to death.

The University of Idaho campus had been busy that day, a sea of ​​gold and silver as the Vandals prepared for a home game against the UC Davis Aggies at the 16,000-seat Kibbie Dome. It was 28 degrees at kick-off – the weather was described as a terrifying “ice fog” – but happy, loyal fans showed up; the Vandals’ 44-26 loss was disappointing, but didn’t stop the students from preparing to take the city.

They included five girls who lived in a three-bedroom rental on King Road, just over a mile from the stadium and just two blocks from the edge of campus. Kaylee Goncalves and Maddie Mogen, both 21 and childhood best friends, hit the bars downtown together. Xana Kernodle, 20, planned to hang out with her boyfriend, 20-year-old Ethan Chapin. The girls’ two other female roommates would also spend the night.

Kaylee Goncalves’ father reveals why the family didn’t hold a funeral

The father of one of the four University of Idaho stabbed to death says his family will not bury her for fear the “monster” who killed her will be present.

Kaylee Goncalves was murdered in the early hours of Nov. 13 in an off-campus home in the city of Moscow, Idaho, while police were still on the hunt for the killer.

Her father, Steve Goncalves, says the family has not yet been able to get around to holding a memorial for their daughter.

“My wife’s biggest fear, part of the reason we didn’t have a funeral, is that she couldn’t guarantee that monster wouldn’t be there,” he told ABC News.

He insisted that he still supports and trusts law enforcement officers working on the case, despite the lack of results to date and the killer still on the loose.

Kaylee Goncalves’ father says he tries to have faith in the police

Kaylee Goncalves’ father has said he is trying to have faith in the police investigating his daughter’s murder, but can’t help feeling somewhat frustrated with the investigation so far.

Steve Goncalves told ABC News he feels “a little defeated” and frustrated with the lack of information police are sharing with the family as the investigation enters its third week.

“I have to assume and hope that this is all part of their plan and … they’ve got this all figured out,” he said.

“I know there are some really good, hard-working guys and girls on this case that I’ve met. And they looked me in the eye and they flat out told me that they are working and they are doing everything in their power.”

Knowing that his daughter’s killer is still out there is the only feeling worse than knowing she passed away, he said.

“[The killer is] have a great life — and you’re just a mess,” he said.

“I must have my justice. These families deserve that.

“We just need to come together as a community. Submit all those pieces of evidence… and get this man off the street.

Man saw him take down tip posters

A “suspicious” man was spotted taking down tipposts in Moscow, according to a 911 call.

In a 911 call, the caller told police they had seen a “suspicious” man walking around last Tuesday who was removing posters with information on a tip line.

It’s not clear exactly which tip line that was, but there’s a good chance it was the Moscow Police tip line at 208-883-7180, which was advertised in connection with this month’s murders.

Student says victim had a “normal night” before the murder

A University of Idaho student has revealed that she saw one of the victims enjoying a “normal night out” just hours before she was brutally murdered in her rental home.

Madison Moye told Fox News Digital that Madison Mogen spent much of the night of November 12 at The Corner Club bar in downtown Moscow.

Ms. Moye, a 21-year-old sophomore and fellow member of the Pi Beta Phi sorority, said she saw nothing unusual, with Mogen “laughing with all her friends” in the sports bar.

“It was just a normal night in Moscow,” he said.

“Moscow is a safe place. Something like this never happens… I didn’t think about it.”

Ms. Moye lives in a house behind the murder house and said she knew the victims and had visited their house to hang out with them. Mogen and Xana Kernodle were both members of Pi Beta Phi

The proximity of her home to the crime scene made her wonder if the killer might have come through her yard, she admitted.

“It’s definitely something that’s been going through my mind and that’s really terrifying,” she said.

Murders at Idaho colleges: The rumors and conspiracy theories have been ruled out by researchers

Two weeks have now passed since four University of Idaho students were brutally stabbed to death in the small college town of Moscow — with no suspects identified, no arrests made, and the murder weapon nowhere to be found.

Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20, were found murdered in the off-campus home the three female students shared in the early hours of Nov. 13.

Despite multiple law enforcement agencies being called in to work on the case, police appear no closer to catching the killer, leaving students and residents of the notoriously safe city wracked with fear and social media awash with speculation.

While officials are tight-lipped on key parts of the investigation, including why they believe the murders were targeted, they have debunked several online rumors and ruled out any possible links to the murders.

Here’s what the police have ruled out so far:
