Parents of slain Idaho student say victims’ ‘deaths don’t match’

The manner in which two of the four University of Idaho students were murdered on Nov. 13 “doesn’t match,” claimed the murdered student’s father Kaylee Goncalves.

“I’ll get to the point — their means of dying don’t match,” Kaylee’s father, Steven Goncalves, told Fox News on Saturday. New York Post reports.

When asked if he was referring to his daughter and her best friend, Madison Mogen, who were sleeping in the same bed when the horrific attack happened, Mr. Goncalves repeated: “They are not compatible.

“Their points of damage don’t match.”

“I’m just going to say it,” he said. “It wasn’t leaked to me. I deserved that. I paid for that funeral.

“I sent my daughter to college — she came back in a box,” he said. “I can talk about that.”

The two 21-year-old college students were fatally stabbed at their shared home near the college campus in Moscow, Idaho, along with roommate Xana Kernodle, 20, and her boyfriend Ethan Chapin, also 20, in the early hours of Nov. 13.

Three weeks later, police have yet to name any suspects or motive for the murders.

Goncalves’ family also told NewsNation on Friday that they believed police were unwilling to provide information to the victims’ families — and that their investigation appears to be moving too quickly in some cases.

“I feel like there are a few individuals who got acquitted very quickly, which maybe shouldn’t have happened,” said Kristi Goncalves, Kaylee’s mother.

Police have said they have cleared several people, including the person who called 911 and two other housemates who were unharmed in the terrifying attack.

In another interview, Mr Goncalves said the family has been holding off on holding a funeral for Kaylee because they believed the killer would be the “sick kind of deranged person” to come to the service.

My wife’s worst fear, part of the reason we didn’t have a funeral [straight away]is because she couldn’t guarantee that monster wouldn’t be there,” he told ABC News early last week.
