COEUR D'ALENE, MOSCOW: One of the victims of the Idaho murders, Kaylee Goncalves, reported a possible 'missing person' sighting to Moscow police a year before she and three friends were murdered in a knife attack. According to Idaho State Police, Sharon Archer, a 62-year-old from Coeur d'Alene, which is also Goncalves hometown, went missing around September 27, 2021.

According to incident report, Goncalves, 21, called the police on October 5, 2021 when she saw a woman resembling Archer at a Walmart store in Moscow. She recognised the woman's face from a missing person flyer and sent the flyer to Sergeant Dustin Blaker. The police responded and tried to track down Archer and her vehicle but it was deemed unclear if the possible missing woman had actually been to the store which was about 85 miles south of Coeur d’Alene, where she was last seen.

Blaker, who eventually become a lead investigator on Goncalves and her friends's murder case, wrote in his report on October 6, 2021, "Kaylee told me the female's name is possibly Sharon Archer," "Kaylee told me the female was staring at her and her boyfriend when they were in the store and as they checked out."

Blaker wrote, "We did not find the vehicle. I had my officers check all of the hotels in town to see if she was staying at one of them. We did not find anything." Investigators also asked the manager of the store if they could review the surveillance cameras to confirm if Archer had been to the store but were unable to find anything. 

According to local media, Archer was found dead in her vehicle, about three weeks later, submerged in Fernan Lake. According to Goncalves's parents, she used to closely follow true crime news online. Goncalves, 21, was stabbed to death along with her three friends Xana Kernodle, 20, Ethan Chapin, 20 and Madison Mogen, 21 on November 13, 2022 allegedly by Bryan Kohberger

Netizens reacted to this newly released information about the incident report. One user commented on the Fox News post and said, "this is crazy! And just so sad! She was helping with another investigation and then this happened to her!" Another comment read, "Right. Normal young girls have a connection with the lead investigator of her death..it doesn't look good…true or not." Another netizen wrote, "Those poor kids! They were the victims of a sick, depraved, evil lunatic. He murdered them all in 15 minutes. I hope he suffers the same as they did and is shown no mercy," while a fourth speculated,"Those kids were more than just victims. Just saying," implying that Goncalves sighting a missing woman who turned up dead was altogether quite suspicious.

A YouTube video titled 'Kaylee Goncalves life allegedly ended after reporting missing woman' had one commentator stating, "A lot of gangs and ex cons hold to weird philosophies like 'snitches get stiches' so yea, if she witnessed a kidnapping then that would be a lead of interest that could lead to a suspect or associate accomplace (accomplice)"
