Kaylee Goncalves' mom reveals their harrowing last conversation before daughter's murder
A week has passed since the murders of University of Idaho students Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle, and Ethan Chapin
MOSCOW, IDAHO: Kaylee Goncalves's mother Kristi Goncalves has revealed the last conversation she had with her daughter on the day of her murder. Kaylee’s parents Steve and Kristi Goncalves joined Fox News's Lawrence Jones on ‘Lawrence Jones Cross Country’ to recall the moment their daughter said, “Mom I'm gonna celebrate your birthday,” during their last conversation before her tragic death. Kristi Goncalves said Kaylee had even promised to treat them when she got home. “We talked a lot. I know she had a fun time Friday night…(she) called me around 2.30 Saturday afternoon,” she remarked.
A week has passed since the early morning hours of November 13 when Kaylee and three other students Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle, and Ethan Chapin were discovered dead in a residence close to campus. The parents also said officials are "wasting their time" investigating Jack, Kaylee's ex-boyfriend, during the latest interview. Kristi said, "They're wasting their time with Jack. And Jack is just as distraught as we are. Jack is our family. Jack is 1,000%. 2,000% our family, and Jack is with us, and we stand behind him 100%."
"We are supporting him, and we know in our hearts and our minds and our souls and the depths of our souls, Jack is hurting. Kaylee and Jack would have eventually been married. They would have eventually been married, and they would have eventually had children,” she remarked. The latest interview comes after earlier, in an interview, her sister revealed that many others in the area had access to the house and knew the code for the door. She told KHQ, “There was a keypad on their front door. I will say, due to the closeness of the community and due to the safety of it, I think a lot of people had access to that door. But yes, that door had a keypad code on it.”
Police had earlier said that they were "making progress" in terms of following up on leads. They disclosed that a profile of the alleged murderer is being created by the Behavioral Analysis Unit. It might not be made public, though, unless doing so will help produce more leads. A map that showed the victim's location before the murders was also made public. 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]
