Parents of murdered Idaho student beg for answers: ‘Where are you? Who are you?’

The parents of murdered Idaho student Kaylee Goncalves have desperately begged for answers about their daughter’s killer as police continue to search for suspects.

The 21-year-old was one of four University of Idaho students stabbed to death at their off-campus home in the city of Moscow in the early hours of November 13.

“We just want this person found so badly,” Kaylee’s mother, Kristi Goncalves, told ABC News on Wednesday. “Where are you? Who are you?”

Kaylee, her best friend Madison Mogen, roommate Xana Kernodle and Kernodle’s boyfriend Ethan Chapin were all stabbed to death inside the house.

“This person came in very methodically,” Ms Goncalves added. “I think he really thought about it. I think he was fast, I think it was calm. And he got in and he got out.

Amid growing criticism from victims’ families and the public that too little information is being shared about the case, Moscow police have reiterated their commitment to maintaining the integrity of the investigation and only releasing details. that do not interfere with the investigation.

Moscow Police Captain Roger Lanier said police “have a lot of information” they choose not to release to the public.

“We are not releasing specific details as we do not want to jeopardize this investigation,” he said in a video statement. “We owe it to the families and we owe it to the victims. We want more than just an arrest, we want a conviction.

Two other housemates, who police say are not suspects, survived the brutal attack and likely slept while on the ground floor of the house.


Ms Goncalves says they have not heard from the surviving housemates since the murders.

“They are also victims. And I’m sure they’re terrified.

For the past week, police have been asking for the public’s help in locating the occupant(s) of a white Hyundai Elantra in connection with the case.

Now, a white car has been spotted in surveillance footage speeding past a gas station in Moscow, Idaho on the night of the murders.

Investigators previously revealed that the victims were stabbed to death in their beds around 3 or 4 a.m. that morning.

The gas station is just a four-minute drive from the King Road student rental house where the murders took place.
