MOSCOW, IDAHO: CCTV footage shows a mysterious man standing behind a group of Idaho University students just hours before they were killed. On November, 16, a video posted on social media platforms by John Webb, a North Idaho reporter for KHQ-TV, revealed that just hours before the homicide, Kaylee Goncalves and Madison Mogen were hanging out near a food truck. They were seen in a Twitch video ordering meals from a food truck. Behind them, a man appears with a hood over his head. The video also shows him leaving after the girls left the food truck. 

Earlier, the bodies of University of Idaho students Ethan Chapin, 20, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, were found in an off-campus home in Moscow, Idaho, at around midday on Sunday, November 14. According to authorities, the victims were stabbed to death using an ‘edged weapon such as a knife’ that has not yet been located. Their deaths have been classified as homicides, but no one has been taken into custody and no suspect has been identified.

Meanwhile, Despite the killer remaining at large, police have insisted that it was an "isolated, targeted attack" and that there is no "ongoing threat" to the community. Latah County Prosecutor Bill Thompson told CT Insider, “Obviously, there's no way police can say that there's no risk, but what they're seeing indicates that there's not a risk that this person will randomly attack people. I don't think they're going to foreclose the possibility that it could be one or more people, but right now they don't know who is responsible.”

The latest video comes after the Moscow Police Department revealed that their detectives were attempting to compile a timeline of the victim's activities prior to their deaths. This includes watching footage from a Twitch live stream in which two of the victims were seen conversing and grabbing a late-night snack from a food truck just before they were killed, according to Thompson. "They're in the process of identifying the other people who were there at the food truck and what sort of contact did they have,” Thompson remarked.
