University of Idaho Murders: Police Reject Claims that Victims Were Targeted


The investigation into the murders of four University of Idaho students has been reopened by authorities.

“Detectives do not currently know if the residence or any occupants were specifically targeted but continue to investigate,”Moscow police statement

Their latest statement is a direct contradiction to their earlier position that the Nov. 13 murders were the result in a targeted attack. It has left many in the community as well as those associated with the victims angry, afraid and frustrated.

Wednesday’s candlelight vigil at the University was held for Kaylee, Madison Mogen and Xana Kernodle. The community still struggles to recover from the four murders, and many are still afraid that the killer may still be at large. However, the vigil was a first opportunity for those grieving the victims to come together to grieve. However, the shadow cast by the possibility that the killer was present in the crowd was a concern.

Students comforted one another, and the mourners wore bracelets with the names of the victims.

Goncalves’s father, Steve Goncalves, spoke about how inseparable Kaylee and Madison were. He also shared a new detail regarding the crime scene.

“In the end, they died together, in the same room in the same bed,”He said.

Chapin’s mother Stacy told grieving students to spend more time with their families.

“Make sure that you spend as much time as possible with those people because time is precious and something you cannot get back,”She spoke.
