MOSCOW, IDAHO: Idaho murder victim Kaylee Goncalves' father Steve revealed the reason behind his "frustration" with the authorities. From the start of the investigation, the Goncalves family has been active and has given interviews for many news channels to discuss their take on the ongoing investigation of the University of Idaho murders. In a recent interview, when Steve was asked the reason behind his frustration, he said, “They [Law Enforcement] put certain people between you and the officers that are making things happen and those people are like lawyers and they don’t wanna say anything and they don’t have the guts to come up and be Alpha and be like leaders and say ‘Hey we might say something wrong. We are gonna take that hit.’”
Steve continued, “So the officers they look me straight in their eyes lead to detective look me in his eyes. I have no doubt he is working as hard as he can. But, somebody isn’t communicating. There’s nothing being released. It seems like they are trying to suppress the story. We wanted to put rewards out, but they are like don’t do that. Yeah, I get it your town doesn’t want to have reward posters posted all over when you come and you do your rush. You are not going to get a lot of students if they see those things. But this community is not going to heal until this guy’s pulled off the street. It ain’t gonna happen, think it through, it’s not gonna happen. He has to be off the streets. We are all working for the same thing.”

When he was asked about when was the last time he heard from the police, he responded, “Thursday.” When asked about the update he had received from the police, Steve said, “There was no update. They needed me to sign a waiver form so that they could investigate something that was male-related. So we are working with them. We are not selling them out. We love our law support.” The interview comes after the Goncalves family appeared on another interview during which they spoke about how they were happy with the current investigation process and how they felt that some individuals were released by the police very fast. “ [We]just feel like there has been a couple of individuals that were cleared very fast that maybe shouldn’t have been,” the family remarked.
The investigation is currently in its third week, but the police have made no arrests or any significant progress. Aaron Snell, the communications director for the Idaho State Police, reportedly stated that his team was looking at a video that might have some hints. Additionally, authorities are urging anyone with information to come forward. Anyone with information about the crime or a tip about the victim's whereabouts, or a suspicious person in the area is asked to call 208-883-7180 or email [email protected]
