Police rule out suspects in University of Idaho slaying – but still investigating ‘stalker’ claims

In this article, you will get all the information regarding Police rule out suspects in University of Idaho slaying – but still investigating ‘stalker’ claims

Police have ruled out several suspects in the brutal slayings of four University of Idaho students in their own homes, but are still investigating claims that one of them may have had a stalker.

Idaho State Police said during their interview they learned Kaylee Goncalves made comments about a possible stalker.

Although they thoroughly investigated the allegations and could not support them, Colonel Kedrick Willis of the Idaho State Police cautioned: “We haven’t looked into that piece of information.”

Kylie, 21, along with Ethan Chapin, 20, Janna Karnodle, 20, and Madison Mogen, 21, were stabbed to death in the early morning hours of Nov. 13 at their off-campus home in Moscow, Idaho.

Police said the four were probably sleeping on the second and third floors of the house at the time. Two of their roommates and one of the roommates’ dogs were saved from the killer.

Capt. Roger Lanier said Moscow police do not believe the surviving roommates were involved in the killings. He also ruled out Kylie’s ex-boyfriend, Jacques DeCour, as a suspect.

Lanier also reiterated that a man seen on security footage near the victims in a food truck the night they died has also been denied.
