MOSCOW, IDAHO: The parents of Idaho murder victim Kaylee Goncalves have been seen on camera, speaking about their daughter and her murder, on various occasions after her death. A social media user has now suggested that they could be making so many public appearances for 'money'. The individual's remarks have been blasted by other users.
"Why are Kaylee’s parents doing so many interviews? I know everyone grieves differently. As a mother, I would not be able to keep my composure. Are they doing it for money?" the user posted on the Facebook group 'University of Idaho Murders - Case Discussion'.
Kaylee Goncalves was one of the four students allegedly stabbed to death by suspect Bryan Kohberger. Kohberger, 28, has been accused of fatally stabbing University of Idaho students Kaylee, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20, in their off-campus three-story rented home on November 13, 2022. Kohberger was arrested in Albrightsville, Pennsylvania, on December 30.
"They have said they are doing it to keep awareness to the situation until it is delt with. They don’t need the money," one user wrote in the post's comment section. "ew. They are trying to keep her story alive," another said. One user wrote, "Can we leave the parents alone?"
"As a mother I would want everyone to know how amazing and wonderful my child was. I’d talk about it to everyone," one user wrote, to which another replied, "this is the last thing they can do for Kaylee - keep her name out there and be her voice xx".
"Leave these murdered students parents alone. They have a right to talk. They are not you," one user wrote, while another said, "Because at some point no body is going to talk about Kaylee anymore and then she will really be dead. As long as you keep talking about her she’s still here to them." "My only parent better be shouting from the rooftops every single day if this happens to me," said a user.
Kaylee's parents had earlier said they “couldn’t take [their] eyes off Kohberger when they saw him in court. “I just was too overtaken by the fact that I was, you know, in a courtroom going over a case that had to do with … people that I cared [about] and loved,” Steve Goncalves, Kaylee's father, had said.
In another interview, Steve had said he wants to look suspect Kohberger in the eyes at court. "This guy's gonna have to look me in my eyes multiples times, and I'm going to be looking for the truth," Steve told ABC News. "That's really what I'm going to be looking for."
Steve had also spoken up about a footage howing his daughter and her friend Madison Mogen in which they are heard talking about a person called 'Adam', confirming that Adam is not a suspect in the case. "We asked and did the obvious due diligence, and we looked into that, and it was pretty clear that this individual was not a part of the investigation as far as a suspect," he told Fox News.
Kohberger appeared in court on Thursday, January 12. He will not be appearing in court again until June 26. This week, the suspect and his defense team reportedly filed a request for discovery, asking for information about a "co-defendant" in the case.
