Kristi Goncalves said, "We are supporting him, and we know in our hearts and our minds and our souls and the depths of our soul, Jack is hurting," she continued. "Kaylee and Jack would have eventually been married, and they would have eventually had children," FoxNews reported. Kaylee's parents added they were obstinate about Jack's innocence in the case and said the correspondence was nothing out of the ordinary. "We love Jack, absolutely love Jack," Kristi said. "We stand behind Jack 1,000%."

Kaylee and her roommate allegedly called Jack seven times at 3 am. According to investigators, the students were likely stabbed to death while sleeping early Sunday morning between 3 and 4 am in the Moscow, Idaho, residence on the college campus. Two additional housemates from the King Road household were present at the time of the attacks, but they are not considered suspects.

Kaylee and her roommates Ethan Chapin, 20, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Madison Mogen, 21, were stabbed to death one week ago. Officials have confirmed that there appears to be no evidence of forced entry into the students' residence, and they are continuing to look for leads.

After police reported Wednesday that they had not identified a suspect or located a weapon in the weekend slayings, the families of the four students have been demanding justice and seeking answers.
