COEUR D'ALENE, IDAHO: The 22-year-old ex-boyfriend of Kaylee Goncalves, Jack DuCoeur was maligned by "half of America” as he became the man of interest in the gruesome murders of her ex-girlfriend, Goncalves, 21 and her other friends, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20 on November 13 between 3 and 4 am. At present, DuCoeur is struggling at the thought of returning to the University of Idaho.

However, the authorities later cleared his name from any suspicion. DuCoeur and Goncalves had been dating for five years when she broke things off with him just three weeks before she was murdered.

Goncalves reportedly had made at least ten calls to DuCoeur the night they were murdered. So far, the police have failed to frame anyone as a suspect in this case. But, the case has attracted a lot of attention from the web sleuths and they continue to come up with new theories which have largely been mocked by the Moscow police department. People started vilifying those related to the homicide case illogically, including DuCoeur because the dog that Goncalves and he bought together has been reported that it failed to alert the trio of possible intruders or suspects.

Speaking publicly for the first time, Brooke Miller said her nephew, is currently “surrounded by family and friends” as he grieves Kaylee Goncalves‘ murder, the New York Post reported. “He’s not only lost the love of his life, and what we all thought and he probably thought as well, would be his future wife — you know, get married and have kids and all of that,” but also, “half of America,” thinks he could “be responsible” for the heinous killings, said Miller. 

Apparently, some web sleuths and even some investigative journalists accused DuCoeur, by raising "red flags" against him, implying that DuCoeur was troubled about Gonclaves' relocation plan. Jessica de la Davies of the Reporter Room in a YouTube video said, “we all know the most dangerous time for a woman is when she is trying to leave.”

Miller said “They’re just the most ridiculous conspiracies,” in response to the online claims, as per the outlet. Notably, Goncalves’ mother, father, and sister have publicly stated their support for DuCoeur since the students' deaths. “We all know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that there’s no way that Jack would ever do anything like that to anybody,” his aunt Miller further said, as per the outlet.

Currently, DuCoeur is taking care of the fluffy golden pooch, Murphy, whom he and Goncalves had bought as a couple. The dog, who lived with Goncalves, was found unscathed at the crime scene by police, and initially handed over to Animal Services. “It’s hard for him to think about going back to Moscow because his life there was very involved with Kaylee’s,” Miller said. On December 6, Miller launched a GiveSendGo campaign with the intention of gathering $20,000 for "Kaylee's family" in order to hire a "private investigator, obtain professional legal counsel, etc," according to Miller. A sum of $17,212 has already been received as a donation.
