Idaho police said Monday that two
men involved in a “stalker reference” that University of Idaho student Kaylee Goncalves may have made before she was killed are not suspects.
The Moscow Police Department said that investigators found a situation at a local business in the middle of October “that may have been the stalker reference (Goncalves) made to friends and family.” Two men were seen in the unnamed business, and when they left, one of them seemed to follow Goncalves to her car as she walked away.
But “the man walked away, and it doesn’t look like he talked to her,” police said in a news release on Monday.
Both men told the detectives that they were looking for women at the business where they worked. Police said that more investigation proved that what they said was true.
Moscow police said, “Based on the information we have, detectives think this was a one-time thing and not a pattern of stalking.”
“There is no proof that the two men were involved in the killings.”
But the police said they would keep looking into whether or not Goncalves had a stalker. They also asked the public again for any information about the deaths of Goncalves and three other University of Idaho students.
A week after the killings, police said they had heard that Goncalves had a stalker, but after going through “hundreds of pieces of information,” they had not been able to confirm this or find the stalker.
Detectives have received an amazing 2,645 emails, 2,770 phone calls, and more than 1,000 digital submissions so far, but the killer or killers of Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle, and her boyfriend Ethan Chapin are still at large. The horrible discovery of the four stabbed bodies on November 13 has sent shock waves through the small college town.
Police also made it clear that Goncalves’ dog, which was found in the house off campus where the four deaths happened, did not have any evidence on it. Police said the dog was found in a room where the crimes had not happened, and there was no sign that the dog had gone to the crime scene.
Moscow police said that the dog was in the house when they got there, but they haven’t figured out where the dog was when the murders happened.
Detectives are still trying to find out what happened between 9 p.m. on November 12 and 1:45 a.m. on November 13, when Chapin and Kernodle were thought to be at the Sigma Chi frat house on campus.
A sign for Kaylee Goncalves, who was one of the four University of Idaho students who were found dead in their home on November 13.
The high-profile murder investigation also involves the FBI and state police, and the families of the victims are getting angrier and angrier. Moscow police said rumours were “stoking community fears and spreading false information.”
