MOSCOW, IDAHO: Days after the killings of four University of Idaho students, Ethan Chapin, 20, Xana Kernodle, 20, Madison Mogen, 21, and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, in the early hours of November 13, there is still no trace of the suspect or the murder weapon. However, it has been reported that on the night they got murdered, Madison and Kaylee had spent the night at the Corner Club, a Moscow dive bar popular among students. At around 1.30 am, they were spotted on camera buying carbonara pasta from Grub Wandering Kitchen.

According to police, Madison and Kaylee arrived home at 1.45 am and just two hours later, the four were killed, reported DailyMail. The autopsy results showed that they died from stab wounds to the chest, with police claiming that the murder weapon was a large military-style knife that still hasn't been located.

According to police, Madison along with her roommate was spotted at Grub Wandering Kitchen, a food truck that offers late-night eats at weekends. The truck was parked between the Moscow branch of insurers State Farm and the outdoor store Hyperspud Sports. Madison and Kaylee were then last seen walking away towards 'a private party driver' for their final ride home.

On the other hand, a photo was taken by DailyMail 10 days after the killings that showed Madison's pair of pink cowgirl boots still being displayed in the window of her rental home near the University of Idaho campus. She also posted photos of herself wearing the pink boots at a bar on Instagram on August 13 with the caption, "How did I get so lucky?"


Her 71-year-old grandfather Michael Mogen, told the outlet that she had "loved college and had been a model student." "'Everybody loved Maddie. There's no conflict I've ever heard of. Since she's been at college and involved in her sorority life, you can see from the pictures it was such a joyful experience for her. She was our first grandchild. She was just a delightful little girl. I've never seen her even cause any trouble. She was curious, a model student all the way through."

He further added, "She got so much attention because she was our first grandchild. We'd see her mainly at holidays and birthday as she got older and got her own social life. We'd see her five or six times a year when she went off to college. She's a beautiful girl who was always a delight."
