The brutal mass murder of students at the University of Idaho rocks the United States.
On December 13, four students Kylie Goncalves (21), Madison Maugen (21), Zana Kernodel (20) and Ethan Chapin (20) were found dead in their beds in the student apartment where they lived.
The father of the dead man, Kylie Goncalves, tells the TV channel Fox News He believes the perpetrator’s real target was his daughter and friend, Madison Maugen.
– It was a targeted murder, the police don’t let me say if my daughter or her friend was the planned victim, but it was one of them, the father tells Fox News.
to me New York Post Police believe the suspect entered the dormitory through a door on the second floor. Then the perpetrator killed Kylie Goncalves and Madison Maugen, who were sleeping in the same bed.
Stephen Goncalves believes it is clear that the two friends were the intended victims, since they were killed in bed on the third floor even though the perpetrator entered through a sliding door on the second floor.
“I don’t understand why the person who killed them had to go up to the third floor, when they could go in and out through the sliding door,” Goncalves tells Fox News.
to me The Independent The police went through more than 1,000 tips, conducted more than 150 interviews and collected a huge amount of evidence.
So far, no one has brought them closer to the suspect.
– We’re checking all the clues, said Police Chief James Frey V Moscow.
According to the coroner, the dead students were most likely asleep when they were attacked.
However, some of them had signs that they had tried to defend themselves when they had been stabbed multiple times.
The New York Post writes that investigators initially believed that the couple, Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin, who were stabbed to death, were the planned victims. Later, the police withdrew their hypothesis, saying that they did not know if the victims were the target of the perpetrator.
– There were survivors here. Based on the evidence at the scene – investigators believe this was a targeted incident, Police Chief Frey said.
The upset father speaks Fox News That if you look at the whole picture it is clear that the daughter and her friend are the intended victims.
– It appears that the perpetrator did not descend more than the second floor. We don’t know for sure, but we do know he went up. So it stands to reason that this was a choice the perpetrator made based on who he wanted to make, Goncalves points out.
Two other students lived in the apartment slept through hFinish and notify the police.
They spoke publicly about the tragedy two days ago. They did so in a message read on Friday night, he writes hv news.
“They all lit up any room they walked into and were gifts to this world. Every day, I wish I could finally give them all a hug and tell them how much I loved them,” said one of my roommates in the letter, which was read by the pastor.
